About Boating in Sukhna Lake in Chandigarh

Sukhna Lake is a serene water-body in the foothills of the majestic Shivalik range in Chandigarh. Presenting a quiet union with nature, the lake is wrapped by greenery and forms a divine spot that attracts tourists. It is so charming that a Chandigarh trip is considered incomplete without enjoying boating in Sukhna Lake, which is a relaxing experience. Now, Shikaras are added to the lake’s boat fleet, making visitors savor an experience of floating on the expanses of this placid lake just like Dal Lake in Kashmir.

When it comes to history of Sukhna Lake, it says that this reservoir was created in 1958 by damming the Sukhna Choe, a seasonal stream gushing from the Shivaliks. It has also been declared as a reserved national wetland by the Government of India. In addition, the lake is a sanctified sanctuary to exotic birds. Tourists can witness several migratory birds at Sukhna Lake such as Storks, Cranes and Siberian Ducks in winters. Sukhna Lake in Chandigarh is rain-fed and presents a soothing and beautiful area, perfect for picnics. The scenic beauty of the lake serves as a true delight for the photographers and artists who love to capture the mesmerizing view.

Once the venue for the Asian Rowing Championships and credited for being the longest channel for rowing and yachting events in Asia, Sukhna Lake is an unparalleled spot to delight in boating in Chandigarh. Nothing is more peaceful than sitting back in a boat and float across the vast and calm expanses of the lake.  A visual treat of the luxuriant surroundings with a clear sky above, adds to the soothing experience. Apart from boating, tourists can enjoy various water activities such as yachting, water surfing, and water-skiing. Those excited to visit Sukhna Lake, should carry a Sukhna Lake Chandigarh map for a hassle-free visit and a great time with their loved one.
