  • Went 7 times till love to go there really cool fresh place the lake situated in center of the city. Surrounded by beautiful walk way and parks. Used to wait 2 hours to get boat ticket. If you choose to ride Pedal boat avoid to go near fence area you may struck in mud.

  • The lake was crowded as it was right in the centre of the town. The water was blackish and smelling a little bit even when in winter. You have footpath encircling the lake where you can go out on a walk. There a boating service available which you can enjoy. Also, there are shops line up at the main entrance.

  • This is one of the few hill station lakes in India. We hired a pedal boat for 30 min. Those were one the best 30 min ever. The place is so cool ,calm and peaceful. Every Indian must visit it in their lifetime.

  • Good for relaxing in a pedal boat. Can go for cycling around the lake 5 kms approx. The road around the lake in one way. Often traffic jam as some guys come in opposite direction

  • It was a different experience I and my 3 friends took a walk along the lake ,and we found it's not as we think.
