The boat ride was good. The ride was a good experience. Did not find it filled with algae as some reviewers said. Kids will enjoy the ride. We also took the mini train ride. Overall a good experience. Nalini

Lake is beautiful. Clean waters. Boating is fun on this. Surrounded by Trees. There is also a mini-train (which is very noisy and jerky) near the lake.

It's a lake guys, just like any other lake. So if you want to go for boating, then this is your place else you are just wasting your time. Cost - 120 for 2 people boat, 240 for 4 people boat
