Amazing place

This place is amazing. A romantic boat rides in the lake, horse ride around. Just amazing!! Still it's little bit crowded, local authorities need to manage the place properly.

The access to the lake is deliberately placed as a toll booth to fleece money from tourist. The banks are dirty and rates appear to offer a ride in a yacht. The boats are average and not well kept. The lake is clean and calm. Rest is awful.

Its a nice place to enjoy your sunset with boating facility, enjoy roadside food stalls like bhutta, pani puri, snacks etc. The lake is also very pleasant. They have the boat rides and chargeable with different boat types. Do not miss out on the fresh strawberries and mulberries.

The lake is an artificial one and yet it feels so real. The guides there will inform you that the place nearby the lake is filled with barren trees (as displayed rightfully in the picture) and hence are a major attraction to not only tourists but also to the film and television industry. The lake is provided with boating facilities... More

Boating in the lake was lovely with our toddler. We thoroughly enjoyed it, There are lots of horses as well, for a quick horse riding. They also have loads of rides as well and food options are quite decent.
