  • We went on a weekday and it is worth taking a rowing boat unless you have atleast 2 energetic people to peddle. You may want to go before 11 am or after 5 pm to have less sun over the top

  • Good lake and nice view. You can choose boat as per family members. They take deposit as well for issuing the boat, which is time bound and you need to return to ticket window in time.

  • Water is smelly. Too dusty area... Boats are not clean. One time visit is ok.. Good no of food stalls, parking is there...
  • One of the most famous and widely visited tourist attraction in Mahabaleshwar, specially know for the boat rides and the roadside snacks near to it, also one can take horse rides next to the lake. It's a must visit place in Mahabaleshwar, this is man made lake, it's recommended to visit this place in the Evening during sunset, as the sunset from this point is very beautiful and one shall enjoy the boat ride with a scenic view.
