This place located 2kms from mahabaleshwar holds most of it's tourist crowd. Sorrounded by shops on 1 side and lake on 1 side, this makes perfect place for picnick. Boating is also great.

Beautiful lake between hills. In monsoon clouds cover the lake. View is very good. Boating facility is there but no proper safety norms followed. Need to maintain cleanness by tourist who visit here

If you don't want the rush, be there before 10 am and go for the row boating. More than the boating, it is the weather that will make you feel good. The cost is Rs 300 per boat, try keeping a separate boat for yourself....More

Not clean lake. Nothing much to explore during time of August due to heavy rain, muddy land and foggy climate. If it rains then no boating available obviously.

One should not miss visiting this place for boating. The best time to visit is in the morning or evening, avoid in the afternoon.

This is one place that defines why people visit Mahabaleshwar... From boating to horse-riding to sipping hot masala chai, eating wada pav & the very famous corn pattice.. and yes, they do serve Maggi as well.. So visiting this place is a MUST..

Wonderful huge lake. Missed boating as it was raining heavily. But the atmosphere is phenomenal. Loved sweet corn and horse riding. Had good ginger tea as well.

Yes you can get parking space. However you need to find out proper place. If you go from 1st Jan to 1 March rush will be low as compare to rest of days of year.
