Take off to venna lake for the evening. They have a load of stuff to do. There are slot machines where I spent close to an hour, try you hand at the air gun stall where you can shoot some balloons plus they have a mini amusement park. Eat Strawberries & cream and corn pattice. They have ample parking space.

Messed up, crowded and nothing exciting to do there. You will not find anything new or exciting here. Rather visit more remote places on the hill station

A very good lake where one can enjoy boating as well as horse riding. Good thing about this place is one can enjoy boating by purchasing fixed rate tickets.

One can view the lake coming from Panchagani especially from Parsi point where can see in detail, certain vantage points from the telescope. Next to lake one can enjoy horse rides

In march - water level was low, however boat ride was good. I am sure this place is going to be heaven in monsoon and winters.
