U must opt for the boat ride if u visit the Venna lake. They charge 300 rs for a boat and take u rowing for a round. It's a very beautiful sight when you go there. And after the ride u can have some corn cob. A lovely experience....

Like all other hill stations Mahabaleshwar also has one lake that is Venna Lake. It is beautiful lake with boating facilities. Surround this lake there are many food stalls and outlets selling sundry items. The lake has similar to other hill station lake nothing special. However if you are in Mahableshwar good hang around place and not to be missed

Very crowded. Almost impossible to get parking here. It is very costly to have lake ride. Amusement park is also very crowded. Horse riding is only good thing here.

The area is covered with mist and you can't see a thing during monsoons. I would have skipped this point if i knew this was the case. Better to visit this point in winters.
