Close to nature and magnificent view. There are also opportunities for yachting, boating and paddling that makes it equally enticing during the day. But It's crowded, Better to visit other nearest Tal like Sattal or bhimtal.

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
