VISITING WULAR LAKE

This concerns a conversation on visiting Wular Lake, the largest lake in India and the second largest lake in Asia. It is about thirty miles from Srinagar.

Ashok: Greetings, Mohan. How are you?

Mohan: Greetings, I'm fine. How are you? Did you finish sight-seeing in Kashmir? Where are you planning to go now?

Ashok: I am thinking of going to Wular lake. What do you say?

Mohan: Before leaving Kashmir, you should definitely go to see Wular Lake.

Ashok: Yes, everybody says the same thing. How does one go there, and how long does it take?

Mohan: From Srinagar one goes by bus to Sopore, and from Sopore one goes by boat.

Ashok: Is there any other way?

Mohan: Yes, many people go by boat from Srinagar, or (they go) by bus up to Bandipora.

Ashok: What is Wular Lake famous for?

Mohan: Wular Lake is the biggest lake in India. It is said that it is the second biggest lake in Asia.

Ashok: How big is it?

Mohan: It is fourteen miles long. One cannot see one bank from the other. When it is windy, waves rise from all sides.

Ashok: How many days does it take to visit Wular Lake?

Mohan: If you go by bus or car, it will take you just one day. Many people stay there for two or three days, living in a large houseboat near the bank.

Ashok: No, I do not have that much time. I have to go to Delhi.

Mohan: Then you should go by bus.

Ashok: All right, I will do that. I have to get ready. Goodbye.

Mohan: Goodbye.
