The lake is amazingly beautiful and looked surreal in the late afternoon. It is quite big also and provides great angles for photography.Visit it to spend some peaceful time.

lovely calm place to be. Best if visited in a group as other than boating not much to do. You can spend an hour or two n click some nice pics. However if you're in a big group, nice place to spend the entire day as it's a nice picnic spot.

must visit & spend some time in this lake. The lake is very vast. One can have nice view of the lake with mountain in the back ground.
