Shudu lake is located on higher grounds which is about 3900m above sea level. Very picturesque view with the light snow falling softly on our head. The sky looks gloomy though due to the snow but otherwise, very cooling with awesome sceneries.

We took the bicycle there, it's a 4-5 hours trip with bicycle, problem is most bicycles aren't in superb condition (although they look new), which as a bike rider always gets me a little down (and later hurts my back). Careful.with the weather. The maps and directions they give you are worth ****, so If you really want to find... More

You can walk one side of the lake, about 2 miles to the next tram station. It is flat and an easy walk. Take it slow with the high altitude.

It is one of the two beautiful lakes in Pudacuo National Park, you should definitely spend some time walking along the lake to enjoy the magnificent view and nature.

About an hour and a half's walk around this lake on a wooden board-walk. It's a well-managed park and just beautiful, I imagine, in every season. Flowers, animals, amazing trees......definitely worth a visit.

There are 2 lakes in this national park. As compared to Bidahai, shudu lake is just normal. Maybe I didn't spend enough time there as the wind was blowing and I was in the verge of being a Popsicle.
