It used to be a nice place to hangout and visit for picnics. But now nothing is the same. Perhaps they should do something to restore it to its earlier charm.

Badkhal lake in the present situation is nothing more than a landmark to identify the nearby places in Faridabad. You will get nothing except for boredom if you will visit there.

Would really like to come here again. There are a lot of activities which are arranged here which can keep you engages for hours. Good outing with the family or with friends.

Lake next to Delhi with deep ravines around it make it a place which cannot be imagined inside a city.

All the hype about the lake is far stretched and it wasn't what it used to be earlier. Can be avoided

Once a thriving tourist complex, Badhkhal now is a deserted lake. Total neglect by the tourism deptt. and the apathy of the govt. has ruined this wonderful place, which a few years back used to be one of the best and most sought after destinations by families. Picnics, marriages, and conferences, used to be the call of the dat there.... More

No semblance of any lake seen. Used to be picnic spot in my childhood, not any longer. Like me you will be disappointed in not finding anything there. Unrestricted quarrying has lead to the sad demise of this lake.

It is not maintained properly. There is no water in the lake and is all dried up. However you will find first timers flocking to this place wanting to explore. There are some snacks on sale and a occassional camel rider. There is nothing to write about.
