Venna lake is very good for travellers who want some quiet time of their own. Just take a boat & ride in the water with cool calm wind around. Try sweet corn, carrots.

For those who are interested in spending time in boating, this is the place. We took a paddle boat and went boating for an hour. The nearby scenaries are worth watching. Ideal time for visit will be in the evening by 5 o clock.

Nice Place for Boating. Both Row boats & Paddle boats are available. Paddle boats can be tiring as the lake is very big. It offers horse riding also, besides the lake. Visit early to avoid ques.

Good place to go paddle boating, The boats (row boats and paddle boats) are not well maintained though. Lots of stalls serving local delicacies like corn frankie, corn patties, strawberry shakes etc.
