HolidayIQ reviewer Ishraque shares, "Very cool place to visit with family, friends or with your partner. The location is very good, the lake, the mountains. You can get three types of boat rides - pedal, row or motor. If you are in Ooty, it is a place you should never miss."

2. Neil Island: Known for both boating and snorkeling

HolidayIQ reviewer Archi shares, “The view of the sun rising from beneath the ocean is a real treat for the sore eyes. You can hire a cycle and take a tour of the entire island. The Howrah bridge, a natural coral bridge is a must watch so is the Sunset point, where everyone gathers in the evening to watch the wonderful sunset. The Bharatpur beach is the seat for all water sports activities. Snorkeling there is must as the water is crystal clear and you can see a whole variety of corals and colorful fishes. Those who fear snorkeling can enjoy the Glass bottom boat ride. In the end, Neil Island is a real nature lover's paradise.”

3. Guwahati: Dighalipukhuri Lake is a boating and picnic destination

Dighalipukhuri Lake is situated at the heart of the Guwahati City. It has derived its name from the word 'dighal' which means long. A man-made lake that is surrounded by a road that leads to different destinations of the city, a boat ride here is miraculously de-stressing and romantic.
