The place was so beautiful. I’m glad that I chose to do fishing in Sindh. It was an amazing experience.
Pahalgam was an excellent place where you can spend some wonderful moments with your family and friends and enjoy the fishing activity.
We were a group of seven adults and three kids. We have been to Vishansar last week. We are very keen to do fishing. We have to walk for some meters in sunlight to reach the lake and then we started fishing. It was a fun activity to do. I recommend everyone to visit this place with their family and do fishing.
Wangath is a very good place to visit. One can do angling and fishing here.
Dachigam is a place for people who love nature and are attracted to fishing and things which are related to Fishes. The place was so majestic. I can spend my whole day sitting near the lake.
There are a lot of water activities I did in Kashmir but Fishing is the best amongst them, it was so peaceful sitting near the lake and watching & catching the fishes.
