You wanna see nature in India that's the place to go to. It can get pretty crowded but there are times when there are less people or no one at all.

At Pykara Lake you can spend time as long as you want. For boating you have to buy tickets which usually takes 5-10 mins. Then you have to stand in a queue which depends on the rush. Usually it is about another 20 mins... More
