The lake is quite beautiful and the boosting is enjoyable. They have a very good walkway surrounding the lake. Having a walk there is an excellent experience and we enjoyed it a lot. Surrounding trees ensured that we had comfort even during mid noon time. Quite photogenic.

They have a good aquarium in the lake complex and it's very good. Nice variety of fishes.

Just outside the lake gate is the virus park and it's just amazing. Different colourful exotic birds. They also let us get inside the bird cages and give us bird food in our hands. Birds shoot on our hands and eat, an amazing experience. We could also get in the cage of giant lizard.

Must visit the point at Wayanad. Highly recommended

A good walk around the lake would take 30-45 minutes. Not very large crowds do the round. Good place for some photography.

Boat rides - like at all venues - would be a longish wait. There is a small ice cream place. A park for kids - swings, slides, climbing setup.

No need of taking the short diversion just to visit the lake. However it may fit in if you have time to spare before or after the long climb up the lakkidi ghat section.

There are bigger and cleaner lakes in Bengaluru. Avoid this over-hyped and overcrowded tourist trap. Not worth the effort unless you have time to kill and are in the vicinity.

Good for first time tourist . The park place zone , water craft, and aquarium on display will appeal to children. I really enjoyed it.

It's a large water body close to Vythiri. Lot of paddle boats, also a nice walking area that surrounds the lake.
Area for kids to play around and stuff to eat outside

Nice hour spent here as we were on our way back from Wayanad. Was crowded on the new year day. Was here with family. It is an okay spot to be here.

Nothing exclusive to visit if you are short on time. However, if you just want to chill and spend some quality time, then take a walk along the lake . About 1 hour with lots of butterflies and nature to explore. The lake looks beautiful with violet/pink flowers in large patches.
Overall good value for quality time

It's a good place to enjoy a lake surrounded by scenic trees , it has a cycling track or a walking track around the lake, u can also do boating over here ,they have 2 seater 4 seater paddle boats and 7 seater roving boat which also has a boatman , prices r reasonable and worth visiting, gets a bit crowded on weekends

Most of the things are non functional. The walk around the lake is peaceful. Lake is nothing much to harp about. Not worth the entry tickets. Avoidable.

Excellent place. Kept very clean, has small play area for children. Full of monkeys around. The walk way round the lake is well kept and pleasing.
