Important Details

  • There are 12-seater boats (10 seats in shade)
  • There is a basic public washroom near the ticket counter but no washroom facility near the jetty.
  • Due to ongoing maintenance work on the approach road for almost a km hence some extra time should be kept for reaching.
  • Parking is available near the jetty point on the road.
  • Senior citizens with less mobility can find it a bit inconvenient to board the boat due to bamboo jetty. (Can share pics to give you an idea about this)
  • Finding an Ola/ uber or auto while returning from jetty is not feasible so either u have to walk back or keep your cab waiting till boat ride gets over.
