Enjoy Boating in the Siligerh Lake
Situated 13kms away from Alwar, is a beautiful place to visit. It is a man-made lake built by Maharaja Vinay Singh in 1845. The breath-taking view makes it a must visit during winters, especially. It is surrounded by the Aravalli Ranges and you can have the whole view by renting a boat, for approximately, INR. 800 per boat. Boating starts at 9:00 am and I would advise you to get there as early as possible, to enjoy the view and the weather.
So for all those Delhiites who need a quick getaway into the lap of nature, I would say that the Siliserh lake is worth giving a shot.Before ending this blog I would like to mention some pointers about which one must take care when planning a trip to Siliserh lake:On your way to Alwar you will find two Mc Donald's. The one at Manesar is a nice option to have breakfast. I would recommend that you get freshen up at one of these Mc Donald's on your way as the washrooms at the lake palace are in a bad state.If you like you can pack homemade food items to munch upon during your drive but no outside food item is allowed inside the hotel premises.Drinks at the hotel bar are sold at much higher rate than the market price. The hotel entry fee includes one complimentary drink like tea, coffee or cold drink so if you don’t want to pay extra you can enjoy your complimentary drink too.If you are an unmarried couple do not plan a stay in Alwar as I was later told by a friend of mine that unmarried couples are not issued rooms in any of the hotels in Alwar.
6. Silisreh LakeFrom the terrace of Lake palace Silsreh, the calm and quiet environs of the Silsreh lake give a magical view to remember. The site is almost 160kms from Delhi and is placed midst the breathtaking Aravalis. Only 13 kms from Alwar City, it is a convenient stopover if you plan a weekend trip to Sariska Tiger Reserve.
The drive to the lake is long and nothing special. The lake itself is overcrowded and, it seems, the only place tourists to Alwar want to visit. There are facilities for boating in the lake, and it has a serene ambiance.
