Madhuri Lake, Tawang
(4.5/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Nestled between Tawang town and Bum La Pass, Madhuri Lake provides a peaceful atmosphere in calm nature atmosphere. Properly named Sangestar Tso Lake, the name Mandhuri was given to the area because of the Bollywood film actress Manhuri Dixit. Formed because of an earthquake in 1971, notice the mesmerizing stillness of the water as it is frozen for most the year with tree trunks standing strongly in the middle. An army canteen is located nearby should you wish to grab a bite to eat. Make Madhuri Lake a centerpiece of your Tawang vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Tawang tourist route planner.
