"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.
