Lake is situated at 45min drive from Pelling. There are mythologies about the beauty of the lake. This is also know as 'Wish Fulfill' lake. Lake is neat, clean & full of fishes.

This is considered as a holy lake by the locals and is right by a small but pretty monastery. You can feed the fish in the lake as well and their food is sold by the shops right outside. That is considered lucky as well....More

The view was not great. The place was a bit crowded. There is no place to get a good photo of the lake (unless you want to climb a bit uphill).

Supposedly shaped like a foot. The birds apparently don't let a single leaf float on this lake. The foot bridge with the prayer wheels is a great sight to behold.

This lake is like a hidden mystery in the middle of mountains. Wanted to spend a day there , reading a book peacefully but alas there is no such facility here - Good though , as tourists would else spoil the serenity.

Beautiful lake - however you really get to appreciate it when you do the short hike to get some great views from above - it was well worth getting covered in leches to see it!
