  • It's a very super beautiful river place... The food available at various stalls was delicious... If you love adventure sports then you must try a speed boat ride...
  • It's a good place for a boating activity.Speed boat is recommended although it's for 8 minutes & cost you 500 rs it will still be worth it.The water remains cold even during summer and you can enjoy the waves of the wind is blowing.There are multiple snack points available nearby where you can enjoy maggi and juice.
