Very beautiful place. Calm and quiet lake. You can have yak ride along the lake side through a small bridge connecting the mountain and the road.

It is a good spot to make a pit stop. I heard during winter the whole lake freezes and the it looks even more beautiful. Regardless with or without snow the lake the mountains looks amazing.
