Upper Lake, Bhopal
(4.5/5 based on 380+ 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. With our online itinerary creator, Bhopal attractions like Upper Lake can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
