"Good time spent with family"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Dec 30, 2015
I visited Karanji Kere Lake and the nature park on 26th of December, 2015 with my family and friends.

That place offer something for all age groups. My 3 years old son enjoyed his time at the kids play area and was running behind peacocks and birds all the day.

We enjoyed a leisure boating trip and then a battery operated cycle ride around the lake. That place is very close to nature amidst the hustle and bustle of a city and hence its a good place to reconnect yourself with nature and its beauty.

The view point which is a high platform raised at the other end of the lake is a bit far from the main gate and one needs to walk a bit to reach there but once you are up on that, it worth all the pain. It gives a great view of the lake, especially during sunset. All in all, a good place to spend your afternoon and evenings with family and friends.

The place is very close to Mysore Zoo and on The way to Chamundi Hill so an entire day can be spent by visiting all these place.

The boating experience was good and nothing unusual or different. The main attraction of this place is the kids play area which is always filled with lots and lots of smiling, laughing and happy kids. The play area is surrounded by bird enclosures where many beautiful and colourful birds can be seen. There is also an enclosed area where peacocks can been seen roaming around with all their beautiful and glamour.

"Good view along with boating facility"

  • 6.0/7
  • Posted Aug 7, 2015
It is only a lake for a good view in Mysore and also pleasant minded lake. It is about 12 km from Mysore bus stand and 16 km from railway station. Here there is a boating facility. For boating purpose they take about Rs. 15 per person. I advise travellers to go to this place in the evening.

Nice place for a weekend gateway with your family. Beautiful landscape, quiet place & variety of birds to mention. A great destination for children's to spend quality time. Sit at the edge of lake and walk around for a one hour break.

"A real place for relaxing"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Jun 1, 2015
You really want to spread a smile on your children faces? Karanji Kere Lake is the best place for that. Forget your workplace and home a while. While entering, trees at the left and right sides welcome you. Trees that are grown up to enormous heights. If you wish to really put your heart into it, just watch the trees at the entrance itself.

There are many varieties of play things in the park for children. What else would children like, other than playing in sand and soil? If you don't transform yourself into a child, while your child is playing or if you want to relax for a while as a grown up, just watch the varieties of birds chirping and welcoming into their cages (oh no, you are not allowed, otherwise you are a bird!).

Walk past towards the cages. At the right side you would find BIRDS place. You really wouldn't have seen the birds in such a close view. It is an arm's length distance. If you are worth the birth (at least, it is my feeling! ), the peacock would show its feathers, trains during its dance. It is all artificial whoever says it is peacock colour, of a saree or whatsoever. Peacock's neck colour only lies in Peacock. You wouldn't find that colour elsewhere. IT IS REALLY A HAUNTING FEELING, if you see the Peacock's dance! Words wouldn't suffice the actual feeling.

Last but not least, it is a place and feeling that is hard to leave behind.

This is a must watch for all sightseeing people. The serenity, the calmness. Just sit beside the lake and let the atmosphere drench you. Awesome experience.
