compare to Nainital, more peaceful, with less people. But Nainital prices are cheaper than Bhimtal. Here u can try pedal boating and simple boating. Price-300₹ per 30 minutes ( but actually u can use for 40 min. Easily)

Tourists suck the fun out of this place !! Only activity as available is boating. Paragliding also available. Due to deforestation around, the place is now warmer than what it used to be.

It's an ordinary lake. Nothing special about it. Boating facility is there. Traffic all around lake.

Great lake with clean water but crowded. Worth a visit and walk around. Has activities for kids like Zorbing, boating. They need to limit the car access and make it more pedestrian friendly and quieter.

This lake seems bigger than Nainital. The surrounding areas are less crowded making it easier to walk.
