Surinsar Lake and Manasar Lake are stunning natural wonders, surrounded by lush forest-covered hills and is the perfect spot for a relaxing picnic. And the best part? You might just get to spot some of the thousands of bats that call the island in the middle of the lake home!
Legend has it that Surinsar and its sister lake, Mansar, were created by the mighty hero Arjuna when he shot an arrow into Mansar. And while Mansar may be more famous for its religious significance, Surinsar is where you go to get away from it all and just soak up the beauty of the natural world.
Don’t forget to pack your binoculars, because Surinsar Mansar Wildlife Sanctuary is right between the two lakes and is home to a wide variety of bird and mammal species. Keep your eyes watchful for cranes, ducks, deer, and Neelgai. And if you’re lucky, you might even spot a few floating lotuses on the lake’s surface during the summer months!
Just remember, while the Surinsar Lake may be the perfect place to relax and unwind, swimming and boating are restricted due to its cultural significance. But with stunning views and plenty of opportunities to commune with nature, you won’t even miss the water activities. So pack your bags, grab a picnic basket, and head on over to Surinsar Lake for the perfect mountain getaway!
