“Lovely”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Lovely quiet and pretty area to walk and catch your breath in a busy city. Take care not to walk there after dark if you are a female on your own.

“Bit of calm in the storm”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

Too hot to & too big to walk around we took a tuktuk round most of the lake & into the surrounding hills for the view. Well worth the 300 ruppees we paid & some nice bars & restaurants along the way. Houses a large quantity of pretty big fish which the locals feed & presumably don't taste nice. Good to sit on the edge & contemplate.

“Better if you have a male companion!”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

Beautiful but I was followed around it on more than one occasion (being a single female traveller here was a challenge).

“Nice lake in hill city”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

Kandy lake is creating a very nice view to both the ancient Tooth temple and Kandy city. Fish feeding near the lake is common, you also can feed big bunch of fishes at time with pleasant surprise. But this lake is not for Bath. You can get a boat ride at a cost from lake counter.
