very bad experiences we have got hear..all the guides are just like robbers..if u don't take them for yr guidance..they use to threaten u..the boating facility is very much annoying..all the boats are very dirty n noisy. we wl never come again here n won't advise anyone to visit this place..the boating facility costs 3600 rupees for one family..it doesn't matter for them whether the family consists of 2 members or 10. one boat can carry 10 persons. but the authority doesn't allow a less membered
