Upper Lake, Bhopal

(4.5/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A nice way to spend an evening at Bhopal. Very prominent water bod of the city. There are boating activities here which can opt for. Or just stroll around the lake, man eateries available too.
