Sukhna Lake

Sukhna Lake is situated in Chandigarh, India, is a small reservoir at the foothills of the Himalayas, the Shivalik slopes. This 3 km² rainfed lake was made in 1958 by damming the Sukhna Choe, a regular stream descending from the Shivalik Hills.The lake was made by Le Corbusier and the Chief Engineer P L Verma. To safeguard its quietness Corbusier demanded that the highest point of the dam (promenade) to be disallowed for vehicular traffic. Sukhna is a conjoined piece of the city of Chandigarh. Le Corbusier had predicted that the city's inhabitants would be drawn it for the 'care of the body and spirit'. The city organizers were profoundly joined to the lake. To such an extent that Pierre Jeanneret's fiery debris were inundated in the lake in 1970, according to his wishes by his niece. The lake is confronting major issues like weed abundance, catchment sufficiency and silting that are essentially contracting its size and depth of the lake.

Sukhna lake is one epic lake situated in Chandigarh with the backdrop of beautiful mountains.The manmade picturesque Sukhna lake in the foothills of Shivalik range is an idyllic place for quiet communion with nature and for offering water sports activities such as boating, yachting, water skiing, etc.There are many exotic migratory birds visiting this lake during the winter season like cranes, storks, Siberian ducks etc. One afternoon I also went here with my mother to witness the epic beauty of this lake. There was a lot of buzz with people getting ready to enjoy their respective boat rides.  There is a play area for kids and some rides as well. Sketch artists are also there to draw a sketch of you or your loved ones.  Food is obviously available so you will have a lot of options to eat.  We took a ride on the lake and enjoy the beauty of the place.Its a great place to spend some quality time.Place is Neat and clean.Beside the lake, you can feel the breeze blowing giving you a freshness.Things to know :-The entry ticket is not there but If you wanna take the boat ride it will cost RS 100 for 4 people.  - U can take private vehicles and rickshaw to reach this place and enjoy. - You can also add rose garden and rock garden if you have an entire day in Chandigarh.  All in all the trip will surely not disappoint youif you are in Chandigarh :)

Sukhna Lake is a reservoir at the foothills of the Himalayas, the Shivalik Hills. It is a perfect getaway spot for the people of Chandigarh from their daily busy lives. I had never seen Sukhna Lake at night I was just amazed by how nice it looked with the lighting in the night.
