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.

Visited this place couple of days back, hoping to see some water. But unfortunately, this is dead lake. No water whatsoever, completely dried down. The place is in poor shape, few resorts are there but no water. Point is, don't expect to see water in any season.

To start with there is no lake, not anymore, go in mansoon you will find some streams, some small ponds but not lake for sure. So what is there... Nature .... and is protected. Go for greenery, open spaces, to see endless land with green and miles of miles of dry lake bed. Go for peecocka, monkeyes, feather, peagion, sparrows,... More

Lake has dried up and you will not find traces of water even in rainy season. Children play cricket at base of the land which used to be a lake. It has... More

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 Lake does not have water, the resort is average overall the lake resort needs improvement to attract more tourist. if developed the area may be a good hangout zone for Faridabad/Local citizens.

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.
