It was a delight to stand beside the lake and gaze upon the views everywhere. Sometimes full with people, not so much in the monsoon. Pack a lunch if you want to spend an our or two with nature.

beautiful clean serene lake and lovely surroundings. Must visit place in nainital. Best part is that price is fixed for boating. Boating in the morning and evening is cool.

I would not venture in the lake with anything like a bag or something which can easily fall off in the lake. So actually never tried it. Should not risk it
