Rent a rowboat and set off on the calm water, take a relaxing walk, or bike around the lake perimeter. You can enjoy a picnic on the scenic lake shore, or admire the "silver cascade," a waterfall formed by the outflow of the lake water.

  • Enjoyed our weekend with family, Kid's and friends. Boating was an amazing experience with kids. Spent 2hrs in boating. Enjoyed the climate, with ice-cream and good snacks while peddling. Nice views and we had good clicks of photographs. Overall an amazing experience.
