How To Reach ?

Firstly you can reach Chandigarh by train or by flight or by personal vehicle depending on your budget. you can easily take an auto/cab from your location to Dhanas lake, which costs around 150-200 Rs. depending on your location. It is 11km far away from the Chandigarh railway station and 14km from the Chandigarh Airport. There is a direct road to Dhanas lake which is full of greenery.

Best Time To Visit………?

In our experience, the best time to visit Dhanas lake is monsoon because in this season it is full of greenery and lots of water inside and you can come in the evening time to get the best possible view. well, you can come here anytime to find natural beauty and silence.

Our Experience To Visit Dhanas Lake.

we started our journey at 11.30 in the morning on my scooter, which is 8km far away from my location. we reach Dhanas lake for almost 20 minutes and enjoyed the road well, which is as usual full of greenery and flowers at the roadsides. On the way, we get to see the furniture market which is in sector 36 Mohali. After reaching the lake we noticed that there is no parking and entrance on the lake. But after that, we see the first impression of Dhanas lake which looks amazing.

Dhanas lake is not famous as Sukhna lake but the experience of this lake is quite good. this is your best picnic spot outside Chandigarh. there is a walking path all around the lake and here you can sit and enjoy the beauty of nature, it is full of greenery and different kind of flower all around which smells very good and also listen here to birds chirping, In the water, ducks swim with their groups, some birds are flying over the lake and there were very few fishes. basically, the lake is divided into two parts by a walking path. there are the floating solar power plant and fountains which attracts tourists more. this is also the best place to shoot short movies and youtube videos because it is far away from the crowd and very peaceful.

After Thoughts…..

The road was very dirty 1-2km before the lake, very polluted, and there was a very dirty smell all around. there was no food, parking, and other facilities on the lake.

If you are interested to visit this lake carry your own food and other stuff. this is not a big lake like Sukhna and other lakes so 1-2 hours are sufficient to explore this lake.
