Went for a short trip. Boating is available at Venna Lake, paddle boat and row boat. Rent is on hourly basis. Once you complete boating, you can also go for a short horse riding, available near the lake. Lots of food joints available near the lake. Parking space is also available.

Vienna lake is a very beautiful tourist destination for boating and horse riding. Very clean and clear water. They have started storing the water by building up the dam. Same water is channelled to the nearby villages. Sunset is very Beautiful from Vienna lake

good place, but lot of crowd and lot of traffic jam. please do not buy any eatables from there, as they are cheaters and they have unity in them. even do not ask any address to them, as they always show as the do not know anything about the place.

Great place for boating. One can take a 1 hr boat ride and it's not that expensive. There are a lot of good eating options near the lake as well.
