It was the first time I was actually testing out the walking track here and believe me, this was refreshing. The walking surface is a wee bit rough but who cares, with the kind of visual panorama that unfolds as you take that long curve half-way around the lake. Your starting point is near the Foto Flash outlet and you can go right up to the Gurudwara, where you turn around for the return journey. I couldn’t time my stretch, because I was stopping every five minutes to take a picture.
The evenings at the lake front can also get interesting with a "Chowpatty Beach" kind of setting; add to that, a long string of mobile food courts selling snacks, soft drinks and tender coconut.
If you’ve always looked for that one place in Bangalore where you can hold hands, follow your feet and get lost in the far distance, this is it.
(And if you insist on taking your paper cone of bhel along, please don’t litter – a lot of it gets blown into the lake. We don’t want to ruin a pretty picture, do we?)⊕
