Damdama Lake is a beautiful lake 24 km south of Gurugram, off the Gurugram-Alwar road. It is around 64 km i.e. an hour's drive away from New Delhi and has a calm and peaceful vibe about it. The lake was commissioned by the British in 1947 for rainwater harvesting. In its current form, however, what makes Damdama Lake enticing is that it is home to over 190 species of native and migratory birds. In monsoons, water levels reach as high as fifty feet and this is when most of the migratory birds are spotted. Damdama Lake is the biggest lake in Haryana and stretches to almost three thousand acres. It is a popular place for picnics as well as for on-site training for corporate team-building exercises.
Surrounded by the rocky Aravalli hills and an uneven but exciting topography, this scenic lake is a perfect getaway for people in and around New Delhi, Delhi, and Gurgaon. Damdama Lake also has many resorts that offer adventure sports and paddle boating on the lake. Rock Climbing enthusiasts may indulge and try out their skills at the Aravalli Hills with difficult terrain. The water level of the lake has an average height of twenty meters but soars up to fifty meters during monsoons and covers a vast area of more than three thousand acres.

Don't Visit. It is not like that, what is shown in the picture. Dirty Place and it is not a lake, better call it a small pond. Road condition is very very bad and it is absolutely waste of time and money.Absolutely disappointing place.
