The calm and quite environments and unpolluted atmosphere make this location extremely serene. Hence, this is an ideal place for tourists who love to enjoy the goodness of nature through tranquility. The crystal clear water in the lake is spread over an area of seven acres and hence, the main entertainment here is boating which is absolutely very interesting. The panoramic view of the green vegetation encircling the area can be made possible by this boat journey. Surrounding the Karalad Lake, there are steep locations ideal for trekking. Thus, adventure lovers can view the genuine forest beauty while catching up the elevated rocks and make the lake visit highly memorable.
