4. Ulsoor LakeThe biggest lake and also the oldest part of Bangalore city. Although nothing remains of the old Bangalore town, the expanse of the lake is a welcome sight. You can choose to take a walk along the walkway that surrounds the lake, or take a boat ride through it. The thick green trees around it make it the perfect way to escape the afternoon heat.
Guys this time we are in bangalore & thought of visiting one of the largest lakes which is known as the Ulsoor Lake which is a magnanimous lake that is sprawled over an area of approx. 50 hectares. This lake was built by Sir Lewin Bentham Bowring, who was Bangalore's commissioner at that time. We booked cab directly from our hotel & reached there & was completely mesmerized by the beauty as it dotted with a number of islands all along, the natural beauty of this destination is enhanced by the lush greenery that surrounds the lake. Because of its owing to its natural beauty and calming environment, this lake is frequented by picnickers and nature lovers alike. This place is also an important venue for the celebrations of Ganesh Chaturthi, specially during months of August and September every year.Heading towards we also fascinated by the abundance of activities that can be pursued here. We sit back and relax the tranquil ambience of this place & also whip out our cameras and click a few shots of the endemic birds that call this destination their home. Guys the best activity we did was boating, which is an amazing way to understand the landscape and revel in the charm of this destination. Guys my personal opinion towards this place is this place is perfect weekend picnic complete with homemade snacks and a game of badminton which makes it is a must when you visit Bangalore !!
Dotted with beautiful islands, Ulsoor Lake is quite popular amongst tourists who wish to spend moments of peace and tranquility and rejuvenate amidst nature.
