Went on a trip with college friends.. It was an awesome experience. Beautiful views and an amazing boating experience. Also few of us rented bicycles and went cycling along the lake! Kept clicking selfies all along! :D

A walk around the lake on a misty afternoon is just awesome. Cycling around it is another option. The lake looks small but its periphery is quite long. Maybe around 3- 4 km.

The lake isn't that clean and therefore we preferred cycling around the lake. Watch out when you cycle as tourist cars race through the roads. After you cycle you may choose to eat from the petty shops and take a stroll along the huge lake. There are a lot of shops around the lake, some selling fancy bags and hats... More

It is vast as compared to the OOTY lake.Also cleaner. Boating has many options,we chose pedal boating. If it was windy, choose rowing assistance.

Everything is fine but nobody is using the life jacket though it is available. Even the authorities do not make it compulsory. If proper awareness is created about the importance of wearing life jackets the whole experience will be very save for all the people visiting the lake.

Its just a lake inside the city. Not good if crowded. Walking around the lake in the evenings is very pleasant. Boating, cycles on hire and horse riding. Kids would enjoy.
