This place is lush green and surrounded by pine trees. Quite place to walk. You can spend few hours here and can have maggie and momos with hot tea.

Beautiful small natural lake around the mountains. Amazing sun set view of dal lake and picturesque. It is a famous tourist spot for picnics, relaxing, and boating. Must visit with friends and family to spend your time.

This lake is situated in McLeodgunj and is filled up with water during monsoons. During summer the water dries up. However, it still provides beautiful views with pine trees lines aside its shores. There is a restaurant situated on the banks of this lake but will only appeal during monsoons when the water is up to the brim.

No water. Just a pit. Story goes that humans made it that way. Is that not the case all the time? Sad.

Is this seriously a lake?? There was hardly any water in it and also a lot of algae on it. Water was literally looking like sludge left out. This needs major support else it will be lost.

Dry Lake
NOT WORTH A PENNY TO VISIT THIS LAKE. it is the size of a football ground and has no water in it. Just cows grazing. I think they have drained the water and left the lake looking awful. iT COULD BE FILLED AND BECOME A POPULAR TOURIST ATTRACTION IF THE AUTHORITIES SO DESIRED IT

Visited this place recently with family. The trees in the background makes the place picturesque for sure. But the lake is shallow and dirty. A boat is partially submerged in it and no one seems to care. Take care of your shoes or you might step on some dung. Not worth visiting at all unless you want some pictures with the trees in the background.
