Surrounded with the aid of lush greenery, Venna Lake may be very popular spot amongst honeymooners as well as households and additionally one of the top locations to visit in Mahabaleshwar town. Tourists can enjoy a boat trip within the lake or a horse journey next to the lake. Row and Pedal boats are available for the tourists.
 While coming back from Panchgani, we stopped at Venna Lake for some boating. It has changed its face since we visited it last time three years back. The lake is a great attraction to everybody with its dazzling sight, boating, fishing, newly came up dam and stalls for games and eatables. It is within walking distance from Town Mahableshwar. It also supplies drinking water to the town. The lake has an area of 28 Acres and average depth of the 10 ft. December to June is not the best time to see the waterfalls in Mahableshwar, Venna Lake’s beauty more than makes up for it. Boating here is a very peaceful experience and both paddle and row boats are available for hire. There are many kiosks selling delicious Maharashtra street food, strawberries, mulberries and more, just opposite the lake.A boat ride at Venna Lake is a very relaxing experience.
