An evening by Dal Lake , Dharamshala

The Dal lake in Kashmir is a famous tourist destination and I was rather ignorant about another lake with the same name in the Kangra district in Dharamshala , Himachal Pradesh.

This lake , unlike its namesake , is a small greenish water body .

Surrounded by deodar trees , it makes for a lovely picnic spot and in the two hours I spent there, I saw groups of  Tibetan children from the near by Tibetan Children’s Village  enjoying themselves by the lake.

It was a pleasant evening in an idyllic spot and one that I will remember for a long time.
