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. This lake is used as one of the important venues for the Ganesha Festival. Subbaraya Temple, Gurudwara, the Kensington Park and the recreational park are some of the sightseeing places which are located close by.

Ulsoor Lake:If you are seeking a quiet, solitary place to either stroll or simply to derive lacustrine pleasure, Ulsoor Lake is the place for you. Located very close to Cubbon Park, Ulsoor Lake is a small body of water where the sun setting looks picturesque. A place for relaxation, you can either walk or jog on the promenade or simple sit at one of the benches observing the tranquility of nature or chat your heart out with friends/loved ones alike. Though online it says there is a boating facility here, we did not find any. Just few minutes from Ulsoor lake, is a small Gurudwara. An unexplored gem, few minutes spent there is definitely worthwhile. After spending good quality time there, we were craving for some food. Hence, we headed out to Commercial street as we couldn’t resist the urge of shopping, being the typical girls that we are.Commercial Street:For all those living in Mumbai, Commercial Street is an exact copy of Linking road in Bandra. A mixture of branded shops and street shopping, you can shop till you drop. Once you are there, you would be lured by street sellers and branded shops alike and there is no way you can resist your indulgent self. Though women are usually emotional creatures, when it comes to our staple diet i.e shopping, you can definitely expect them to take a practical stance. We both had to shop different things and decided to meet at a common point after we were done with our heart’s shopping. Whether you are a brand conscious person or prefer everything cheap, Commercial street is a must visit place for shopping if you are in Bangalore. Day 4: Again came the time for solo sightseeing. Having heard a lot about it and staying at distance arms from it, I decided to explore Lalbaugh Botanical Gardens.
