It's such a pretty place....can't give it a miss. The boating is a lil expensive but totally worth it.

“Was better earlier”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

My 2nd visit here - the first time around, the place was kinda undiscovered and i was able to spend quality time there - boating etc. This time around, there was a huge crowd. Took us 15 mins to negotiate and reach the parking lot - when we reached the lake, we were told that we wud need to wait 2-3 hours for a boating trip. Naturally, we walked out.

“Speed Boating can be interesting”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

It a nice, clean and huge lake. Option for boating is available. Speed boating, however expensive but can be an interesting experience. We visited this place on a very sunny day so could find much place to sit, relax and enjoy. There are not much to do there.

The roads to reach this lake is not good on some patches but beautifully surrounded with the trees. One can feel the cool breeze of lake while driving on the road to reach the lake.
