  • Went there with my family, we didn't have the time or bookings to go within the forest but took a ferry ride, our ride started right after it had rained for sometime, so the surroundings we're lush and green. The park is really beautiful from outside, there were a lot of varieties of plants and animals, we spotted a deer and some others as well. I would recommend spending a few days and exploring the park if you are going that side.

  • Boating is a nice experience. You can see animals only based on luck Don't expect to see anything so that you won't get disappointed Located at 3 km from kumily. You have to park your vehicle at a different spot and go inside forest to boating point in forest dept bus. 80 RS tickets for up down journey' For boating in Lake better book online

  • The lake and hills are awesome Fantastic Biodiversity and the natural beauty! How much I say about the natural beauty of the area will be a little because the area where the place is situated is very nice and It is surrounded with a charming natural beauty besides the environment is so cool and Over The Horizon you will find a green view of the area so someone who visited the area will definitely love it. Over all the place is Fantastic.

  • Place is good. Good atmosphere. Many comfortable places to sit. Bad for taking photos because of shadow. Good with family and friends.

  • waste of money. Just a long ride on the boat. You won't be able to see anything, walk freely on the boat. we got the lower seats and were not allowed to loiter on the top part or outside of the bpat. Its just you have to sit with that suffocating life saving jacket and enjoy the ride.
