Great spot to picnic indeed. Only the cleanliness needs to improve. Otherwise, a good ride across the Narmada on an old fashioned boat and calmness inside the banyan tree mesh on the island make for a good outing.

This has roots of more than 100s of years. If you are nature lover, this would give you lot of peace. There isn't much manmade and thankfully so. We did have a bath here and water was so clean. Good place if you love nature.
