Badhkal Lake Overview

Ranked 7 of 15 sightseeing in Faridabad

Badhkal Lake is situated in the Badhkal village, which is around 8 km from the Delhi border. It is an artificial lake, surrounded by the Aravali mountain range. The unchecked mining in the region has led to the drying up of this lake. Travellers can enjoy snacks at the Haryana Tourism restaurants located near the lake.

During spring season, a flower show is organised at this lake which attracts several travellers. A Peacock Lake is situated close to Badhkal Lake, from where tourists can have a clear view of the Aravali range.

Nature's beauty

I have a nice pleasing experience. A peaceful place to roam with friends. Though the lake is now getting dried up but still its beauty is eye catchy. Trees, peacocks, parks, restaurants add to its beauty. The hotels provide tourists with quality food at a decent amount of money. Many small vendors can also be seen selling small items. A few temples are situated near Badkhal Lake. Large rocks, cool atmosphere makes it a perfect one day outing place. I love to go there every second weekend. Moreover it is free of cost so no problem in visiting again and again.

A lake not maintained

Badkhal Lake was a once natural lake situated in Badkhal village near Faridabad, Fringed by the hills of the Aravalli Range this was a man-made embankment. Due to unchecked mining, the lake has now totally dried up. There are restaurants in the vicinity. A flower show is held every spring here. The Peacock Lake, near to it is better than this.

Peaceful and calm place!

Badkhal Lake was one of the most sought after place for weekend visits. But over the years it has lost its charm. I guess city life eats into the charm of the nature. You can spend a lovely day with family here. There is also provision of boating and horse riding if you are interested. There are several shops which will take care of your food related needs. It is a calm and quiet place to spend a day with nature.
