Badkhal Lake was a natural lake situated in Faridabad, Haryana, about 32 kilometers from Delhi. It was a natural lake surrounded by hilly areas of the Aravali Range in Haryana. Now it has dried up completely.

The picnic spot is not worth visiting, There is nothing to enjoy, poor surroundings, hopeless eating joints run by the Gov of Haryana. The local population enjoyed this place till late 80's.

Located in the heart of NCR, the lake as such is very beautiful. It is very poorly maintained not even worth going with your family once.

I kept on visiting Bandkhal since my childhood and had lot of memories but unfortunately now it has lost its charm as there in no lake now. Restaurants, motel etc lack maintenance and not worth staying.

Nothing like the lake is left in this place. No more a tourist spot now. Won't recommend this to anyone, as there's nothing to see now.
