Upper Lake, Bhopal

4.4
#2 of 22 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.

  • Very good place to hangout. It is one of the biggest lake in country. You can feel the beauty of this place. The road to the upper lake is downward and feels very good to walk or run. In the lake you can enjoy the water sports. For water sports player this is very good place to practice. The security is good and rescue team is good skilled.
