Has different types of rides. You can take motor boat ride for 8 min or regular half an hour ride which takes full round around a mountain. However, its sunny would find it boring.

In case you are at Dalhousie and have an extra day to spare, visit Chamera lake and go for boating in the evening. Its totally worth it.

Visited this place while coming back to Pathankot. This place is quite far from Dalhousie. I think 25Km. You can do boating there. Its also on expensive side. Rs 300 or more for 1 person

Nice lake with serene atmosphere. Boating was good. But it is not a must-see. Go for it if you have time at your disposal. Otherwise, it is avoidable.
