A big lake to view

It is good place to visit when in Dalhousie because of the vastness of this lake and the situation with hills surrounding

Huge dam. Lake is spread out wide. But dirty water. Dam must be blocking all waste stuff and keeping it lakeside which has led to accumulation of all kinds of garbage over the years. Boat ride is there but pricey. Average experience overall.

Chamera lake is quite far away from Dalhousie around 35 km away from Dalhousie. But this place is very beautiful. Sceneries are very good. My family enjoyed the boat ride. I took speed boat. Very good family picnic spot

If you have enough time to spend you can go and come. Else it's OK kind of place. Nothing much. You will have boating over here and few stalls to have snacks...

Nice lake, but overpriced boating, even a six month baby boating charges are there, place is a 1 and half hour drive from dalhousie, If you have done boating before in nainital, saputara or at any hill station, you can easily give it a miss. If you are bachelor you can visit it for power boating.

long winding drive. a liyttle rough ride though but woth the effort. enjoy maggi and other snacks at the lake. tea coffee etc. could be avoided in summers/monsoons. though rainy drives could be romantic with very less traffic but the roads might ruin the romance during rains.
