  • This is the most attractive place near to Mahabaleshwar, one should not skip this place to visit. Very peaceful when you entered in water. We have 2 option for boating, using paddle and raft. We took raft option with the local person as assistance. He was really good person who taught us how to raft with proper balance. Easy go person not looking for money. You will see some trained horses who do not require any master to take you for horse ride. Really nice place.
  • Nice lake for boating. Two boating options available- rowing boat and paddle boat. I have picture here describing prices and capacity of boats (in Marathi). On the right side of lake is Horse Riding option costing Rs.100 for very short ride of around a minute. You can also buy strawberries here for Rs.200/kg and fast food is also available. Lake is also very beautiful.
  • Venna Lake is one of the most tourist attractions in entire Mahabaleshwar, Maharashtra. The lake has the boating facilities in the day time for all the visitors. It also has many more attractions near by for small children like horse riding and small road side games. Opposite to it there are many shops for food biting. Strawberry milkshakes are very famous over there. Over all a good attraction place for everyone.
  • It is a nice and lovely place. Views are mesmerizing. Horse riding is available and most of all you can run the horse. There is also a boating club here with paddle boats and boats. You can drive the boats if you like or if you want you can ride in one . A lot of street food is available there and parking is free.
  • What an amazing panoramic view of the lake and the mountains. A Boat Ride is a must here for an amazing experience. Mahabaleshwar is truly heaven on earth.
