“Getting Charmless”
2 of 5 bubbles Review of Vastrapur Lake

Ranked #27 of 125 things to do in Ahmedabad

Attraction details
Owner description: A pictorial lake in a lustrous environment is a joyful visa and Vastrapur lake in the western part of Ahmedabad is one of such alluring location. Encircled by all around greenery vastrapur lake is a must see spectacle in the city. Green lawns in the surrounding happen to be the most popular podium of various cultural events. A garden with elaborate stonework is an added attraction here. Water lovers can go for boating since, and the less adventurous can embark on a nice promenade through the nice pathway that rounds the lake. The lake looks so appealing at times when it is fed with the waters from the Narmada river. Let your children loose in the lush environ of the Vastrapura lake and they will have enough to keep themselves engaged in the adjoining children’s park.

“Breathe in some fresh air and gorge upon some great street food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2012

If you have an evening to spend in ahmedabad this is the best place to do it...

Take a leisurely stroll (or a jog if you wish to) arounf the lake.

If you need a dose of shopping newly built Alpha One Bazaar is barely 5 mins walk away.

For foodies the options are great, you can either gorge upon some chicken wings and the first KFC in Gujarat (which is not so surprisingly jam packed) or if you dont have that much budget you can try many street joints dotting the lake.

you can find Khichu (gujarati dish) Chineese, Punjabi...South Indian food at very reasonable rates, there are also restaurants like Havmore, Jassi de parathe, Upper crust and 9 apple in radius of 1 km.

If you like gujarati thali a good option is Rudu which is located on roof top of a nearby complex.

The best time to be there is evening.

If you are in some luck you can find some good music concert or play shows going on in the ampitheathre.

“Lake lacks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2012

The vastrapur lake is situated at the heart of western Ahmedabad. The location is very approachable,but the lake is not fully developed like the kankaria.The dust rises and coats you when you walk briskly.

Lots of roadside food available here. Have a walk around the lake.

Just a random way to spend a few hours.
