Upper Lake, Bhopal

4.5
#2 of 18 in Parks in Bhopal
Visit Upper Lake to take a relaxing boat ride or to sit on the water’s edge and take in the scenic beauty. This manmade lake, which was built by Raja Bhoj in the 11th century by building a damn across the Kolans River, is a source of drinking water for 40% of the residents of the city of Madhya Pradesh. Stop by the boat club, where you’ll find a vast array of activities on offer, such as kayaking, canoeing, rafting, water skiing, and boat excursions. You’ll also see pedal boats for rent, as well as speed boats if you fancy a more adventurous activity. Keep your eyes peeled for the five species of tortoise that call this lake home.

Where to stay in Bhopal

The accommodations in Bhopal's northern old town come in all shapes, sizes, and price ranges. The labyrinthine area close to the train station has a number of budget-friendly hostels along its many busy side streets, and some standard hotels on the wider roads of the district. Luxury converted heritage buildings offer the chance to stay in a storied Mughal palace, with all the five-star service that implies. The new town to the south possesses a mix of standard and luxury chain hotels, as well as some business-oriented options in the commercial Maharana Pratap Nagar area.
