  • good place to visit .. enjoy boating ..no negotiation and no chik chik on boat riding .. there is fixed price for boating.. enjoy the view, mountains, lake, boating.. 
  • Very Clean lake with excellent options for boating. They are constantly airing the lake to maintain it 
  • Boating in chilling weather is altogether different experience. Lake gives all different scenic views. We really enjoyed
