Wular Lake (also spelt Wullar) is one of the largest fresh water lakes in Asia. It is in the Maqbuza Kashmir, between the cities of Sopore and Bandipore. The lake was formed as a result of tectonic activity and is the largest freshwater lake in Asia.

The Jhelum River feeds into the lake, which acts as a natural flood reservoir. The size can vary between 12 to 100 sq mi (31 to 259 km2), depending on the season
