The beautiful Ulsoor Lake, located in the city center, went through a phase of being thoroughly neglected before it was spruced up again. Boating is a possibility here. A visit to this lake can be combined with a visit to the nearby Gurudwara (Sikh house of worship), Bangalore’s largest.

Average lake

The lake has a walkway around it where people go for walks. One can just sit there and enjoy too. But during peak hours due to surrounding traffic congestion it becomes too noisy

Nice place to hangout and the best place to train if you are a professional runner. Taking a round of the lake is close to 3KM.

Not worth taking the time out to travel to visit. It needs maintenance and cleanliness. Good for a morning walk and nothing more.

This iconic lake conveniently located walk-able from MG Road is apparently rejuvenated, but it's a shame that it's still contaminated and is not a worthy tourist spot. Hoping for a nice breezy boating, I had to come back disappointed. Long way to go...

Visit to Ulsoor Lake is a must when you come to Bangalore. The Ulsoor lake has boating options like motor boat and speed boat. You can also spend time with your friends and family in the beautifully landscaped gardens neat the lake

Hi All, By seeing these reviews in tripadvisor, I went to Ulsoor lake in morning on May 28th 2016. Though Garden is open boating is not there. Staff clearly said that only 2 months boating will be allowed. Please get confirmation from staff before you go there for boating. But place is nice.
