Gadisar Lake, Jaisalmer

23rd December 2013

Situated not far from the town of Jaisalmer is Gadisar Lake. Once it was the source of water for this desert town, now a kind of tourist attraction. The Temples surrounding the lake add to the beauty of this lake.

The best time to visit this lake is in the evening. The rays of the setting sun on the lake give a nice feel of this place.

I was pleasantly surprised to see the area around the lake very clean. Like many towns in India, Jaisalmer does not fall into the category of clean town but the authorities have managed to keep the lake area clean.

The main attraction is boating. My daughter was apprehensive about it due to the experience in Kolli hills but was finally convinced.

Or one can just walk along the banks of the lake. I do not think that it gets crowded most part of the year. It was Christmas when we visited but still it was not filled with people.

Cat fishes concentrate on one part of the lake where there are fed with breads. Due to the easy availability of food, they have grown huge in size.

A good place to spend an evening in Jaisalmer. But some people who visited in summer months were disappointed as the lake had gone dry!!

There are some eateries and souvenir shops. And also one can wear Rajasthani dress and get a snap. Tanushree could not resists wearing the dress and posing for a photo!!
