The lake is like any other tourist attraction elsewhere. The place is not well orgainsed and it is at time very crowded. If you are there, trying out the place one is fine

Visited Venna lake on the way to Mahabaleshwar . The boating jetty was ready and we were the first to visit. Me and my daughter made a ride on the horse near the lake and this was a first time experience for my daughter. The ride costed Rs.120 for one round.

This place definitely has improved. No longer can you be fooled by touts who used to lure you to a boat without a ticket. Facilities have improved for sure.

We spent a nice evening at the lake. We did boating, my son did lot of photography of the different shades of sky and water. We also did the horse riding. Lot of fun activities on the adjacent road. You must taste strawberry ice cream made of fresh strawberries and fresh cream.

Visited venna lake 3 days back. As it was off season, there wasn't much crowd. The lake is serene and is spread over 3 kms. You have choice of paddle boat and rowing boats. You must have either and experience this lake. The view is superb and you enjoy being at the heart of it. There is a Hunuman temple... More
