The lake was nice, the color was green. We can enjoy it from the high only. The challenge here is throwing stones as far as possible, and some of us failed to throw it to the lake. Funny games. Some people sell the stones there.

View to the lake is very interesting. You can enjoy it while eating and drinking at warungs there. You can also buy a small bag of stones and try to throw it to the lake. People says that the stone will never land into water.
