    Serene place to watch sunset and sunrise
    Its a peaceful place to drive down the lake and watch the sunrise and sunset. Visit in the evening. The place is calm and quiet. Lake surrounded by mountains. View is great. Good place to chill with family. No entry fee and parking is available outside. No washroom facility.

    Serene and peaceful minus the crowds
    A serene and peaceful lake where you can just sit and relax for an hour. We reached at 4:30 in the evening and found just 20-30 people here. There was no official parking or entrance fees when we visited but that might change in future as we saw some entrance gate under construction.

    A serene lake covered by Lush Green Mountains on All Sides !!!
    We were driving to our homestay at Chikkamagaluru when we saw the lake falling on the same route we were traversing. We thought of visiting it before proceeding ahead. It was almost 5 p.m. by the time we reached the lake. And it was the best decision to visit here at this time. The entire area around the lake is serene and peaceful. There is some construction work going around at the entrance crossing which there is a beautiful pathway constructed for people to walk around the lake. There were quite a few tourists when we visited the area. The best part is that the lake is landlocked from all sides and is surrounded by tall mountains covered in a lush green carpet of trees. On one side of the pathway is the lake; on the other, it is full coverage of mountains with the valley. We could also see some shrubs with beautiful and multi-colored flowers on the lake's edges. There were also some food stalls selling roasted corn, snacks, ice cream, and beverages, which you could enjoy watching over the lake. If lucky, you can also spot a few migratory birds in the distance over the lake. We could catch a family of ducks swimming. All in all, this is a gorgeous place to be in. Nature's beauty at its best !!!

Beautiful lake and a silent place. We were there in the evening so there was crowd but if you want to enjoy time in silence, you should plan to visit an early morning.

A super stretch to drive and reach this huge lake. While the lake is good with amazing views, be informed that you need to walk a bit after parking your vehicle. And there is no place for shelter. Its a barren land near the lake. If you reach there after 10, it becomes very difficult to walk in scorching heat. There is no place to even buy water- forget something to eat. Bets to visit before 10AM or after 4.30-5PM
