Nothing extraordinary with this lake. Situated very near to Begnas lake. You can skip this lake if you have seen Begnas lake first. Just nice and serene place. more »
Beautiful lake.. but it's like ignored, there's no infrastructure build to attract tourist. It's like a forgotten lake even though it's very close to Pokhara city. Government and locals should involve to build tourist attractions there.
Beautiful lake but look like ignored! Worth Visit once if you are in Pokhara or going to Rupakot resort.
