  • Took 3.5 hrs to walk around the lake slowly and enjoying the views and nature. The trail is generally well marked.  more »
  • This place has a huge playground and a place to swim it’s great for kids if you’re around come here and spend the day  more »
  • This is a beautiful lake. Clean enough to swim in it, hire a boat for a while or walk around it.
  • The lake is probably few kms away from the bus stop. This is really nice if you go in slightly cloudy day. U will walk through city, highways, jungle areas etc. The length is 13.5 km, which would take roughly 3hrs. We started 1pm and finished by 4pm that includes snacks time I. The middle of the way. The best place to have snack and rest time is the second resting place after 7km distance.
