The Present study was aimed to estimate and investigate some physico-chemical parameters of Dal Lake of Kashmir, India. During the present study water samples from five basins were collected and analyzed for the physicochemical properties. Analysis showed a great variation in water quality among the different basins. Much polluted basins i.e., Telebal and Jogilankar are having deteriorated water qualities and possible reason for this could be the increasing eutrophication resulting from agricultural practices in the nearby catchment area or tourism activity.
