Beautiful place in nature's lap. Lake with boating (speed boat, kayak and some other options), picture perfect landscape, tea gardens, exemplary spot for a short break from the city chaos. An extra star for being less crowded.

Due to a good monsoon there should be enough waters. Have read that there are speed boats there and also that the forest dept is discouraging it as it frightens the wild elephants when boats go near them.

I don't think so. If there is no permission required on other days, I can't imagine why they would insist on Oct 2 alone.
