Venna Lake
Reviewed April 10, 2014

This place is actually very good and you will enjoy the water along with fresh air flowing there. The water is very clean and the same is supplied to the local people also.Prefer to go in the evening time.

The best part of the Mahabaleshwar trip is a visit to the Venna lake. During the period of my visit the lake wasnt completely full but enough to enjoy it. The boat ride charges was Rs 250 for half an hour for boat rowed by the boatsman, the boat can accomodate 7 people. However this info is not shared by the administration, they try to fool people in booking the entire boat for a family. So if you are not 7 peopl in total look out for another family so that a total of 7 people group can be formed. There was option for self rowing too. Then there are paddle boats for Rs 440/- per hour charges. The half hour boating esp during the sunset was simply superb. Then there are sweet corns near the lake which are to die for. Also there are horse rides who charge Rs 100 for a 15 min ride. Then there are strawberry vendors selling sweet strawberries. Overall a good place to visit.

I have always loved Veena Lake and loved self rowing but this time it was not as much fun as the water level as reduced a lot, may be you can try after monsoon season.

The lake is a great place if you just like to sit and enjoy the sunset. But the boating activities and the continuous nag of the corn sellers make you feel irritated. However the lake is very clean. You can indulge in horse rides if you are keen on the same. The horses are really healthy and good looking.

One of the main attraction of Mahabaleshwar. Enjoy boat riding...walk in the serene garden and entertainment park. After that have a good things to eat at Mahabaleshwar Chowpaty. Don't miss on Corn Tiki, Corn frankee and Strawberry Ice-cream with cream.
