Venna Lake is now too crowded. However must do at Venna Lake is having Corn Pattice and Small Carrots. Thos who have patience can stand in queue for a Boat Ride. And those who love Horse Ride can enjoy a ride or two.

This place is seriously overrated.... Parking is an issue if you are going during season time.... nothing more than plain and simple boating....

The lake is at walking distance of around 15 to 20 mins from the hotel. Though over crowded, its relaxing and cool near the lake.
