Due to poor maintenance, Badkhal Lake is now just a trench. They have made a small pool alongside from boating but that is no-way comparison to natural lake that we used to have. Govt needs some cleanup to do there,so we can have a natural lake after monsoons

It's no more a lake, due to mining in Aravali the lake is dead now. Thanks to Mining Mafia & Netaji & to there humble government servants. Now the second part is Netaji & there land mafia friends want to refill the dead lake not for the sake of tourism but for there pockets which is logically not possible.

If you are going on a picnic with your friends you can go to this place. There is restaurant which is known as Grey Falcon on the top which was one of the best in 80"s but slowly dying now.
