The lake is beautiful surrounded by greenery. The lake is not for boating. There is a small dam built on this lake. Cool Lake. Love spending some time here as it is less crowded.

It was raining and the lake was very beautiful! Best time to visit lake is in the evening, during the day there is a lot of rush. It's very quiet in the evening and makes for a good evening walk by the lake.

Good, scenic place close to market. A 60 minute hike in the morning should cover not only the dam, but other closeby points.

if you like a lake view and have not see a small reservoiur you will like. yes of course opposite to lake there is water flowing downward which creates waterfall. but be carefull it may be risky. dont go too near to the edge.

The lake was good. AS it rained heavily on the day of my visit, so lake was full. Water was not very clear because of the soil. It is advised to sit near the lake for some time.

No, camping is not allowed on the open grounds. But there are Hotels nearby and you can avail of those to stay. However, you can sit late evening near the lake and enjoy the nature.
