Lake is average. The small zoo of birds is very nice for eyes. Peacocks can be seen dancing and a variety of birds to be seen. Won't take more than an hour for a tour.

Karanji lake attracts people due to its silent atmosphere and fresh air. Boating facility is available here. There's a walking track along the bank of the lake which leads to 'Butterfly park' where we can see variety of butterflies.
