I visited Bhushi lake on sunday and crowd was horrible. Locals street food vendors will trouble you lot. Overall place is good but sometimes you won't get good crowd.

The lake is at an elevation, gotta walk for ten minutes and then climb about twenty steep stairs, but the view is worth it. Pretty quiet. Although probably not a good spot for picnic due to lack of comfortable seating areas.

The water had almost gone dry. The gates are closed for public viewing. The snacks vendors too have disappeared. We used to have a great time visiting there as kids. But things have changed over the years.

It would be a disappointment to you if you go with high expectations. Nothing interesting here at this lake.

No water in the dam and nothing much to see. A big disappointment not only for us but all other people we met on the way.

Bhsuhi dam offered cool breeze and wide view of the lake when we visited in the last week of June. It was treat to the eyes. Dam looks large and alluring in rains, Lush green mountains around the lake adds to the beauty of place....More

Not worth. Not very clean. They say it has a “lot of water” in the monsoon season, but when we went in December it had very tittle water, that too not so clean, to enjoy enough.

Nothing special. May feel disappointing if you have already visited lakes in Himalayas like Nainital area, Bheemtal or other such huge lakes, as compared to those, this Bhusi lake is nothing. May be visited if going through that way.

Highly not recommended only place to visit during monsoon. Nothing special. Just can have bathing as water overflowing over the dam and spilling over the steps making bath enjoyable . parking cost 100 .
