We visited this place in December. Although there was a log queue to get a boat, we felt it was worth it. You can either choose a pedal boat or a row boat with a guide for 30minutes or 1 hr. For the row boat, the guide rows it for you. There is a horse course near this lake and... More

It is crowded at afternoon, so plan for Veena lake with enough time in hand. To get the ticket of boat, you need to wait in s long queue. But the experience of boating in Veena lake is awesome. The best time is afternoon just before the sunset.

Its bit crowded and reminds of Mumbai. Drawback for boating is that the boat is available for a group of 7 people only. Its a place where you can relax, enjoy horseriding and eat snacks.

Boating is very good and is open upto 7 pm. Lot of crowd . Nearby horse riding is also excellent. Should try Corn Based patties / frankies are too good. Whole corn / Fresh strawberries are also excellent. Ginger tea is also recommended
