    Beautiful Lake
    Lake Gregory in Nuwara Eliya is the place to go for water activities and its a great spot for picnics. You can find ponies trotting along the lake. There are also boats that you can hire to go out on the lake and enjoy some serenity.

    Should have been a higher rating as this is a fairly pretty place but…
    Why let motorbikes on what is a footpath? Was really annoyed to see an idiot wizzing past us, locally local, probably not paid an entrance fee (300 each for us foreigners). On the subject of fees , where is the money going? Clearly not on signage or update of paths. As 60% of the way around we were presented with a barbed wire fence with no clear U turn options. Why? We’ll never know. Instead we had to squeeze through and scramble up bank, cross a road bridge (which we would have had to have done had we turnaround and walked 500m back) and then rejoin path (via another entrance point - don’t throw your ticket away or you’ll pay again)

    Time pass
    We took a motor boat for a trip around the lake, there are other options, jet boat, jet ski pedal boat or kayak. The rates are fixed and it is a pleasant activity. One can also walk around the lake.

    Peaceful and beautiful nature
    The lake is in a nice park. There is an entrance fees to it around 600 SR. The park is clean not many seating areas. Beautiful to walk around. The lake is so beautiful and clean. There are water activities like a short speed boat ride, jet ski, paddling boats and so on.

    Man-made lake, save your time and money
    This is a man-made lake which was not anything special. We paid Rs6,000 for a boat trip that only lasted 20 minutes and was a complete waste of money... Later in the evening we had to pay an entrance fee to walk around part of the lake, which once again was not great,as the paths are not well maintained. Overall, we could have given this place a miss with the benefit of hindsight....

    Beautiful lake
    Gregory lake is a very beautiful lake surrounded by mountains in the city of Nuwara Eliya. One has some boating and jet ski options for those interested. It is so beautiful that one can simply sit by the lake for hours and enjoy the view.

Nestled amid Nuwara hills, the Gregory lake is a small lake for boating while boatman describes the importance of nearby places.

On the 17Th of March 2024 we visited this place. I am writing this review while sitting on a bench.
At the first Entrance this counter people charged my husband who is Dutch 600 Rupees and from 120 Rupees.
We went in and had no connection to make it round so we came back and a woman started chasing so rudely with the where is your ticket ? Like we came to be ripped off their something.
Paths are full of garbage. Plastic bottle bags everywhere. Some men urinate just like that everywhere. Simply not worth it.
What I can say please don't waste your money or the time on this money grabbing lake. If you go on make sure you keep your ticket with you all the time.

It’s a small man made lake, surrounded by hills and greenery. Boat ride is also available. Surrounding path needs proper maintenance.
