It's nice, but much nicer is the crater Lake about 50km away. There you are alone. No tourist, No shops, Just pure Nature. It's bigger and much more beautiful

We visited here briefly late in the day. Lake is set in a very nice location. It's quite large. Seems to be a very popular place with the locals. Lots of little bungalows for picnics.

Amazing place, well looked after by the Tampoeun. You walk right around the edge or swim in the clear, clean water. The banks are clean too.

Breathtaking views. A great volcanic crater lake to trek around. Many places to sit, relax and be inspired.

I had a great time to swim there. Surrounding by big trees. If you wish to have something to eat there, you have two choices, one is pack your lunch from the town and the second one is order foods from local people there.
