I visited the Gadisar Lake one evening and reached there just before sunset by an auto from the Hotel I was staying. You can easily get an auto to go back to your hotel from here after sunset, don’t forget to reduce the price they quote.

The water front gives a special charm to this place and while I went crazy clicking some photographs, I also enjoyed sitting on the steps for around 20-30 minutes as the sun slowly bid its daily adieu.

For those who want to go boating, the place offers that facility for a cost. I preferred to enjoy the place from the landslide.

One of the fine outdoor activity /picnic spot in Jaisalmer.

By foot pathway travel in side of lake and you will enjoy the boat ride .

Best time to visit here is in morning and evening .

Ticket- Only for vehicle parking and for boat riding . For boat riding must be bargain and also must be sure that how far away ride path and how much time will ride.
You can easily visit here via cab or auto or taxi

Must Be- proper shoes or rubber footwear , water bottle , umbrella /hat .

Must visit near by historical build structure near by side area .

Too much bagger near by area so must avoid them in gentle way.

When you go to visit Gadsisar Lake, the first thing you notice is the gate of Tillan, which welcomes you to the beautiful surroundings of the lake. It is carved on rich yellow sandstone which serves as a majestic attractive gateway to Gadsisar Lake.

It is a required stop in Jaisalmer. Do it in the morning as the warmth of the sun is better for pictures, here we obtained fine reflections in the lake. Many couples being married and some film making takes place here - look out for that. Pretty clean also.

We had an amazing time. its a serene lake not far from the centre of Jaisalmer. You get peddle boats, normal boats to get around the lake. we chose normal boats. if I remember correctly, for the two of us we paid around 1200. It was a half an hour boat ride, which got extended to 45 minutes. The views of the surrounding architectures from the lake are amazing with all the cenotaphs gracefully increasing the visuals. We went around 4.30 pm and finished our ride just before the sunset. I would definitely recommend this to everyone. Even those with mobility issues would not have any problem visiting the place. There are couple of coffee shops in one of the corners of the lake, which again give a different on shore perspective of the lake. Do spend at least couple of hours in and around the lake, specially during the sunset.

By American standards, this is not a lake- it’s not very big. However given it’s location in the middle of the desert, you can tell that it is beloved by the locals. They have very ornately created a beautiful lakefront to visit. I highly recommend walking along the city view as well to get a distant view of the fort. This stop is in the heart of the city and doesn’t take more than 30 to 40 minutes to enjoy. Definitely among the top 3 to 4 places to see in Jaisalmer.

The lake is on the outskirts of Jaisalmer and very near to the Jaisalmer Fort. It is an artificial lake and supposedly provides water to Jaisalmer.
There is no entry fee to the lake. One has to pay only for the boat ride.
A very nice place to spend some quiet time by yourself or have picnic with friends, family. One can go boating in the lake or simply enjoy a walk around the embankment.

Gadisar lake in the beautiful city of Jaisalmer, was artificially built for water conservation. It is surrounded by temple shrines and ghats.

One may visit the place for a quiet and serene break. In Winters you may see migratory birds. One may enjoy boat rides as well.

Fee - no entry fee but boat rides are chargeable depending on the type of boat you pick up.

We walked to this place from patwon ki haveli, a distance of nearly 1.5 km. You may go by car, cab or auto.

We were on the day of Shivaratri,in evening visited shiva temple on the banks of lake.As evening sets in the reflection of sun set on water was worth seeing.Boating facilitie is also there. sun set point and puppet show museum is also near, hence it is better to keep this point for the evenings.

Intique tourist season there will be used to do the booting different types of booting are available. From roving boat to paddle boat maximum 10 people can sit in a group bookings ticket prices are comparatively expensive. If you compare it with Lake Pichola and its experience. The nearby market of the lake is good to explore.
