Lakes have the tendency of adding to the serenity of a place. Be it the solitude and solitary confinement they offer at times, the chance of being one with nature, or the ability to enjoy that ethereal essence left behind by them, these water bodies have the affinity of brightening our moods whatever time of day it may be. In a land as big as India, there are innumerable lakes that run their course, unperturbed by the daily happenings of life, embarking on a unique journey from start to finish. 

Whatever it may be, lakes have always been the center of tourist attraction since time immemorial, especially in a nation such as ours, where a majority of the states are famous all around the world for housing some of the most amazing wonders the likes of man has ever seen. So when we encroach on the topic of beauty, it would be a cardinal sin to leave our city any step away from the front runners. Chandigarh- the city beautiful is known for its lush gardens, its historical monuments and last but not least- its ever so beautiful lakes. 

Today, we will show you the 5 most famous and beautiful lakes in Chandigarh and what is it that's so different about them that they seem to add on to the beauty of this city day after day.

 List of top 5 lakes in Chandigarh: 

1. The Sukhna Lake, Chandigarh

When one mentions the term lake, the next word that pops into our head and comes to the mind is Sukhna. Probably one of the most famous tourist attractions in Chandigarh, which considering the vast array of beautiful locations we have is no minor feat at all, the Sukhna Lake is situated in Sector 1 in Chandigarh. Its roots trace back to as old as 1958, where it was created by damming the Sukhna Choe, a stream that originates from the Shivalik Hills and flows occasionally. Its incredible beauty is not its only underlying feature. With a large number of eating joints, souvenir shops, games, amusement themed rides, boating rides, a jogging track, a CITCO cafeteria, and acres and acres of free space where people of all ages come to enjoy a breath of fresh air in the morning/evening walk, the Sukhna is pretty much the weekend retreat of a majority of couples, families, children and the aged living all across the city. Its close vicinity to some colleges makes it a site of constant get-togethers given the peace and quiet the place has to offer. 

2. Dhanas Lake, Chandigarh

Situated next to the Dhanas village in Sector 38 which eventually led to the naming of the lake, the Dhanas Lake has plenty to offer. Though not as opulent in grandeur as the Sukhna, it is a full-fledged lake that has plenty to offer, with some of the perks not being prevalent in the other lakes in Chandigarh. Devoid of jogging tracks and various types of boating facilities, the Dhanas lake does have an astonishing view accompanied with peaceful surroundings, since it is located in a secluded area, away from the chaos and clamor of the city. Quite a sight for bird-lovers, it grants the perfect place where they can take good clicks of birds and flowers by the side of the lake. 

3. New Lake, Sector 42, Chandigarh

A majority of the population in Chandigarh do not know about the existence of this marvelous lake. Located in the quiet region of Sector 42, this lake is called the New Lake, and there’s a reason behind its naming. Fairly young as compared to its other counterparts, it has become an instant hit with the students of the younger generation who are known to visit it frequently. Though smaller in size than the Sukhna, the lake does have its very own jogging track. Many people just sit by the lake and gaze at the stars a lot of times. Managing to create a lot of waves since it was first found, the New Lake shows promise of attracting tourists both nationally and internationally over the years to come. 

4. Renuka Lake, Sirmaur

Bordering the state of Chandigarh's neighbor Himachal, this lake comes as a pleasant breath of fresh air to nature lovers. Granting immense fun while boating, a zoo, a few rides, a temple and other amazing features, the trip to Renuka requires 3 hours at the very least for us to enjoy because of the boating, the long walks that can be taken all around the area. Despite being among the oldest lakes ever built, the Renuka never ceases to enthrall us with its never ending beauty. 

5. Tikkar Taal, Morni Hills

After a journey of steep turns, a few hiccups and quite a few kilometer long hike, the Tikkar Taal is located in amongst the most exquisite places. In its essence, it is a lake flowing between two mountains which offer an excellent place for outing. A wonderful weather, the gentle breeze and the clouds moving as if they were coming towards you culminate into a one truly magical experience.
