  • It was a pleasant surprise to discover a vast and lovely lake in the desert. It is an example of the kindness of the reigning monarch. The reservoir gets filled just when there is sufficient rain. The boat ride here was delightfully refreshing.  The scene of setting sun reflecting on the waves created by gentle breeze was captivating. While on the move the boatman told several entertaining anecdotes. There are lots of attractions on the banks too. An observation deck on the shores offers a panoramic view of the vast expanse. The way to the lake also holds many souvenir shops.  At this place, one should not miss an opportunity to get dressed in an ethnic apparel & net a photograph as a memento of that.
  • Take a boat ride and experience the serenity of having a lake in a desert. One can enjoy a calm and smoothing boat ride on this lake. Gadsisar Lake is home to multiple variants of catfishes as well. ● The best time to visit the Gadisar Lake is between the months of October to March. The weather remains pleasant which is perfect for sightseeing around the place. Also during these months one can find some amazing birds here that everyone cannot help but fall in love with. ● Make sure to walk around to lake to get amazing views from all sides and get best clicked pictures. ● Come here with ample time as due to the limited number of boats the queue can be pretty long. Now I'm going to share some pictures with you that I clicked here.......
