Rent a bike and cycle around the park, or go by foot to enjoy the nature at a slower pace. Take a boat ride across the lake, from which you can enjoy great views of the park. The park also offers spaces for jogging and other physical activities. For Van Vihar National Park and beyond, use our Bhopal trip builder site to get the most from your Bhopal vacation.
