Venna Lake is right at the footsteps of Mahabaleshwar. It's home for a boat club and tourists can buy tickets for a ride in small paddled boats on the lake. It's a 30 minute ride which you can try. A good way to bond with family and friends and feel that adreneline rush too..

If you want to boat, then Venna Lake is the place in Mahabaleshwar. This time around when we went in rainy season, the lake was closed for boating. Though on previous visit, we had gone for boating on our own and it was a nice experience. One can hire a boat with a person to boat too for a cost.... More

The boat ride was average, like any other lake ride would be. The place is highly commercialized with lanes of small shops, hoards of horses and a long queue for the ticket. Avoidable!

This is an okay place. Not extraordinarily beautiful. Again not something that can be out-rightly skipped. apparently this lake is the source of water in the hills. The horse ride can be a fleece and we didn't go for it. Nice little boating experience.

Its a very good place in the heart of Mahabaleshwar where one can enjoy the rowing boat. As I was there during the Monsoon period it was an awesome view as at times nothing was visible because of the fog n clouds. We can also have horse rides on the road at the entrance of the boat club.

Beauty, serene and enjoyable boating in heavy rain. Though sometimes it can be dangerous and adventurous during monsoon.

Too crowded, better to visit first thing in the morning when crowd is thinner. Do take care to note where your car is parked, as it may become difficult to spot when the crowd gets thicker

If you haven't boat ride then must enjoy but very crowded. You can also enjoy horse riding. Enjoy padel boat ride with corns then you will enjoy more.
