Somebody who comes from a dry area of Rajasthan, seeing a lake is as it is a pleasant sight. What added to its beauty was the vast expanse and cleanliness I found here, the ducks flocked together in shores and the colorful boats floating slowly.

As Bhopal is known as City of Lakes, the upper lake is one place you must visit. Basically entire Bhopal is around a lake and is a good spot to go for a night stroll or a walk along the lake front.

Upper lake is the souls of the city.
Must visit.
Preferably walk through along the lake side.
Boat rides are there.
A wonderful place to go for early morning walks and find some time in peace with yourself.

Upper lake is very large,beautiful,nice views of Shamla hills. In evening this part remains busy with people. We took boat cruise at 6PM which takes around 45 mintues, You can watch sunset & views of Shamla hills. Cruise is a simple boat with 2 decks, they take 80 persons for cruise, ticket is Rs 170/= per person.

I'd heard a lot about the Upper Lake & was excited to visit. My first visit was in the evening. Locals had come out in good numbers to enjoy time on & around the lake.

I'm not fond of boating but my friend convinced me to go on a speedboat with her. Thank God I did! It was an exhilarating experience. The ticket counter is right at the Boat Club & the prices are fixed. There was a queue but it was all well - organized.

The lake is clean & pristine. The efforts put in by authorities & Bhopal residents is evident. At the Boat Club, we also saw quite a few ducks & geese. They were posing for food! There are a few food stalls on the other side of the Boat Club.

I returned to the Upper Lake the next morning for a photo-walk. I began at the Van Vihar entrance end & walked on the periphery of the lake (called Lake View Road) for ~2 KMS.

It was a great photo-walk. The shimmering blue lake provided a picturesque backdrop. I find it difficult to believe that a lake within a city can be so pristine. Little boats bobbed on the lake surface.

& then the birds! I'd never thought I would get a chance to see SO MANY kinds of birds but I did. From Indian Pond Herons to Oriental Magpie Robins to Green Bee Eaters to Pied Kingfishers to Purple Sunbirds to Bar - Headed Geese to Gadwalls & many more.

Upper Lake is a MUST VISIT!

This is the best part of Bhopal and hence crowded all thru out the day. The best time to visit is early morning or late in the evening when you can take a nice leisurely stroll along the pathway. There is an impressive statute of legendary Raja Bhoj in the lake.
