Venna lake is man made...the surrounding area is quite happening... tourists can munch on really sweet corns, mulberry and strawberries...or normal chats, etc. You can also buy fresh carrots and turnips...boating is allowed 1 hr 600/- ...available till 7-30 pm usually. Nice place for spending the afternoon and evening time
Nice place to boating in evening. Best place to take natural photos while boating. Try to avoid visit in lunch time as you will get dehydrated during lunch time. Also beside lake there is one big hours riding place, you can see some pictures of hours riding ground.
One of the best place to have fun while Boating in a lake with good view and surrounding. Well maintained to have a ride a boating. Stall around the lake are too good to have a quick bite with lots of items available at quiet reasonable rates.Horse riding too is available outside the Lake. Best time to have Rain Fog with cool climate all at a time.
Lake is cool. Good for family & couple boating. Horse ride also available. Roads are narrow & too much traffic near lake.
Excellent get away from the shoe in the city :) Went on a weekday hence the crowd was not much and had ample time to spend for boating .. A must go...serene feeling.. There are horse rides too available on the shores.. 400 for half an hour for rowing boat
