  • This Lake is located at an end and therefore attracts less crowd than Nainital and Bhimtal. Really a nice place to visit and a visit is definitely recommended. 
  • Boating in the lake was a great pleasure. The water was very clean. Lake water was calm. The boatmen were polite and friendly. 
  • A very nice . quite & peaceful stay. Stayed for about 6 days. Beautiful view of the lake. Very relaxing. Love to go back soon.
