I travelled here by scooter which was amazing way to travel to the lake. It's a sandy track so be careful. Where you get there it's beautiful. Just sits and take in the amazing landscape. Great place to have a picnic and chill

Does nobody take their rubbish away with them? Visitors and the local vendors are to blame. They are fast turning a very pretty place into a cess pit. I can’t understand why nobody seems to care at all. Same goes for the Hampi Waterfall area.

Rented a moped and just went for a ride around. Really nice easy and empty roads for beginner riders too. Pretty views at dam. Some people swimming but signs everywhere saying not to.

It's a nice place to just sit and gaze at the endless mountains at the far-end of the lake. It's situated in Virupapur Gaddi, the hippie side of Hampi. There are people offering coracle rides here. Though there are singn-boards advising travelers not to swim...More
