Went there after the business trip , as i heard a lot about the Badhkal lake. Sorry to say no water is left , just a small patch of water thats it. I feel sorry for the people doing business in the vicinity of Badhkal Lake as now less tourists visit the place.

Due to poor maintenance, Badkhal Lake is now just a trench. They have made a small pool alongside from boating but that is no-way comparison to natural lake that we used to have. Govt needs some cleanup to do there,so we can have a natural lake after monsoons

Its a wonderful tourist place where everyone can enjoy boating in the lake , horse riding & elephant riding. There is a restaurant also , You can enjoy the food also, Everyone should go there atleast one time to see the strange tourist place between mountain looks. Thanks

It's no more a lake, due to mining in Aravali the lake is dead now. Thanks to Mining Mafia & Netaji & to there humble government servants. Now the second part is Netaji & there land mafia friends want to refill the dead lake not for the sake of tourism but for there pockets which is logically not possible.

If you are going on a picnic with your friends you can go to this place. There is restaurant which is known as Grey Falcon on the top which was one of the best in 80"s but slowly dying now.
