Bhalu Dam reviews
Probably this takes you the farthest away from where you can't plan for visiting any other place. My taxi fellow was clear about this. He also emphatically told that there is nothing to view out...

Bhalu Dam is the place of an Artificial lake that offers a panaromic view of the snow-capped wide range of Himalayan Range.

Anyone going to Ranikhet, must visit this place in the thick jungle. It seems some Britisher build this dam over a century ago purely for the benefit of wild life (bhalu !). And this purpose has been served magnificently. It has a large all weather lake. At the Chaubatiya garden entrance, one can find an authorised guide to take you to the dam excursion. It’s about 5.5 km for the return walk, mostly downhill while going and uphill while returning. Airtel works fine here. There is no boating.
If you are looking for trekking, this place is perfect. Beautiful views, great weather. You have to trek for 3km to reach this dam. I would highly recommend to take a guide with you to not get lost.
