  • Beautiful lake wonderful scenery
  • This is neither Menmecho Lake nor Elephant Lake. This is called Batang Chu. It’s amazing how anyone can put anything on google map. Menmecho Lake is further westwards down from Baba Mandir. And Elephant Lake is just a name given to Batang Chu by the armed forces to dilute the local culture and heritage!!!!
