About Damdama Lake

The Damdama Lake is situated at a distance of about 60 km from I.T.O Delhi in Sohna, Gurgaon district of Haryana. This lake covers an area of 3,000 acres, and it was formed when an earthen dam constructed by the British was commissioned for rainwater harvesting in the year 1947. It is mainly fed by monsoon rains via embankments and troughs. With majestic Aravali Hills in its backdrop, the lake looks stunning with its greenish waters shimmering in the daylight. The lake is amoeba shaped, having many branches. It is home to more than 190 resident and migratory bird species that pay regular visit to this water body throughout the year. Some of these are cranes, fowls, terns, egrets, and kingfishers, etc. The lake offers ample open spaces for picnicking. If you love adventure, you may try hands at boating. Motor boats, paddle boats, row boats- the lake offers all services. Adventure activities like rock climbing (on difficult Aravali terrains for experts or rock climbing walls made at adventure resorts for amateurs), hot air ballooning, parasailing, cycling, angling, trekking, etc. can be enjoyed by those seeking adventure. Overnight packages at Haryana Tourism managed resorts with families or corporate groups, obstacle courses, team building games and bungee jumping can be booked at reasonable costs. Sunset, with rays’ reflections in the placid waters of this lake, is a must see sight!
