Lake Tahoe


The majestic Lake of Tahoe is situated at a distance of 200 miles from the city of San Francisco and lies across the California/ Nevada border. The peaceful environs of Lake Tahoe have both- nature lovers and aventure buffs. The sparkling waters of the Lake offer fun filled exciting water activities- sailing, canoeing, kayaking, boating, angling and much more. As much as people come here to enjoy the thrilling water activities, they also take pleasure in the adventure activities on land- hiking, biking and golfing.

Best time to visit

Summer is the peak tourist season but you can visit throughout the year. The Lake is cool and the environs are refreshing in the summer time. However if you want to avoid the crowd then visit Lake Tahoe during the winter- it is serene and peaceful!


If you are more of a person who enjoys cold weather, then visit the Lake Tahoe in the winter months as the region is known for its whitest and brightest winters and winter sports in the whole of North America!


Early morning is the best time to start your day with a trip to Lake Tahoe. You can spend a full day at the Lake and do just about what you want here. The Ski Resorts open in late October and close in June.
