About Punganur Lake

50%
voted as clean

Punganoor Lake is frequented by enthusiasts of boating and rowing activities. This man-made artificial lake has a circumference of 57 sq. m. In the centre of the lake a fountain is located, which can be reached by boating. In the vicinity of the lake, there is a floriculture garden that houses a variety of flowers and rides for kids.

Near the lake also lies a Mughal Garden having many play equipment for kids. An ideal place for leisure walks both in the morning and evening, the site also allures many birds, who come to have their feed. Situated in the centre of the Yelagiri Hills, the area around the lake is a popular picnic spot.

"Nice for kids" new review

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted 3 weeks ago
Nice place for kids and adults to have fun, a good experience. Entry fees is ok since it is maintained properly. It will be good to have speaker sets around the park and playing karaoke which will give some nice feel.

"Beautiful place for a happy walk" new review

  • 4.50/7
  • Posted 4 weeks ago
The reason to visit this place is absolutely nothing as it's the only place to visit there. There's boating in the lake which is not great fun and the travellers can just go for a walk with their family or let the kids play around the play area.

"Must try the homemade chocolates"

  • 4.50/7
  • Posted 2 months ago
Should visit this place of interest, worst part of this place is boat ride which takes hours before you get a chance to do the activity. Just walk around the lake and enjoy the beauty. Food available outside the lake must try homemade chocolates and spices available in shops.

Lake is serene & scenic, two types of boats are available self pedaling and group boats. Lake is very big and scenic, you can have nice time. Permissible to take photos, children can enjoy a lot.

"Clean lake among nature"

  • 5.00/7
  • Posted Apr 21, 2015
The lake is beside the park and it is very clean, boating in the lake is refreshing. On the way to lake you can eat fresh cut mangoes, cucumber and guava. The park has a lot of trees.

"Good lake for boating"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted Apr 8, 2014
Its best part was the boating. Though the ride was short but a good one. The canteens were good. There was a tower over which one can have a good sight of nearby lake and hills.

"Do you like boating?"

  • 5.50/7
  • Posted Sep 28, 2013
An artificial lake with boating facilities.
Courteous and strict staff. They do not allow people for boating if they refuse life jackets and are tough with miscreants.

"Boating was available."

  • 3.00/7
  • Posted Aug 27, 2013
That was a good experience, but little boring, they don't allow us to play in the water at the shore of the lake. They don't even allow us to relax on the bench near the shore, we were chased from there stating the police is around. This was not at all good, we felt upset and annoyed.
