Water sports, including kayaking and canoeing, are popular in European countries and Kashmir is the only place where the climatic conditions and water bodies are equal to that of Europe. With the advantage of suitable weather conditions and a
world-famous water body, Dal Lake authorities took the initiative to organise the national level water sports coaching camp

help us in our training and gain achievements. Basically, it (kayaking and canoeing) is a European sport which is very famous in Europe, and the weather in Srinagar is mostly the same as in the other European country. So practicing here adds to our
strength,” said Namita, a player from Madhya Pradesh.
