About Sukhna Lake

Sukhna Lake is the most prominent tourist attraction in Chandigarh. It is a beautiful manmade lake that stretches over 3 Km. The vast expanse of this lake enveloped by the blue sky and Shivalik mountain range presents a breathtaking sight. You can choose to boat, stroll or simply sit and relax here. At the front end, you may find some amusement rides for the kids. Adjacent to the rides are a few shops and a cafeteria that usually remain crowded on the weekends. If you want some alone time, visit the dead-end of the lake. To reach the end point, you pass through a fabulous boulevard of trees with a golf course on one side and staircases to different entry points to the lake on another. People are seen walking, exercising and running during the early morning hours and evenings at this place. You may spot a group of college students enjoying a get-together on the staircases of the lake very often.
