The lake was full of water and with a pleasant breeze blowing the boat ride was refreshing.. Only minus point is the dense growth of hotels around the place which is gradually making the place its naturality

Bhimtal lake is the biggest lake among all other lake, water is clean and place to some really beautiful ducks, which you may not find nowadays in nainital. Bhimatal is comparatively less crowded, less commercial and hence a nice, peaceful location.
