Can walk around the lake and the plains with cool breeze blowing around.Really a very good site of the forest tour. Can typically spent 45mints to even more in the lake.No boating is allowed and no fishing as well.The drive to the lake is really picturesque and pretty natural with forest trees all around. Occasional monkeys may be seen in the branches of the trees hanging at the edge of the lake.

  • Deep inside the forest... Nice landmark

  • This is the last point ...but the forest staff collecting 20 rupees ...I don't know why they collect money ..we already paid 200 rupees at the sanctuary entrance...and they doesn't give any receipt . you can spent some time ...suitable for couples...and families...
