This lake is on the way to Avalanche Lake but the way to reach lake is little difficult as you have to walk down for 10 minutes. Overall there are good views but you can find the same views at lake Avalanche as well.

The lake is just awesome. The view was unbelievable. You wouldn't find any better place to have a Sunset view. The lake is a bit far from the city but the view is worth the travel.
