Its a small water body with lots of fish in it. Unfortunately people snack around the place and throw the waste in the lake. You can give it a miss!

Great views of small lake surrounded by hills and greenery. Not very well maintained though. Not much to do except, horse riding and a Shiva temple. Enjoy views for 20-30 minutes and you are done

Online I had read that Dal Lake is quite beautiful so made it a point to visit. The lake is a murky brown color and filled with plastic bags and plastic bottles. The surrounding area (which boasts short hiking trails) is also covered with trash.

Dal Lake in Dharmshala is not so good. We have visited two times. Due to rain we have not taken pictures in first time. In second time we have taken pictures. But it was not so good.
