Visited this place along with family. Driven by myself all the way from Noida. The Renuka Lake is not at all recommended for any specific purpose. It's in bad condition and very poorly maintained. On the other hand Renuka ji Temple is worth visiting and having blessing. Well maintained, neat and clean.

Situated around 310 Km from Delhi and 52 KM from Nahan, Renuka Lake is a beautiful spot located in a valley around 600 metres above mean sea level. This is a very quiet place where early mornings and evenings provide one with an opportunity to savour even the faintest sounds of nature. The lake is teeming with fish which are... More
