The location is little off road on the way to Chamba... but once reaches, one enjoys the natural beauty... if you are fond of boating, do go for speed boat ride... as there are no proper hotel / restaurant, plan for your lunch accordingly

The road from Dalhousie is good though it may be 6 km longer if you do not get to cross the Dam Top by Vehicle. The lake is like any other such artificial lake with... More

The whole experience was very nice, they have got good boats and charge 250/- pp and 150/- for day 1 baby as well. but you'd happily pay this price for the fun involved.

Not many takes for the boat ride that morning.. Virtually we had the boat for ourselves.. Drizzling rains...Serenity everywhere.. Not to be missed.
