  • Half a Century back in 1960 this lake water used to be crystal clear fit enough to drink without even filtering. I had my own experience when I visited this lake on a days picnic from my School. I still remember to have collected water from this lake for drinking, with an aluminium vessel (No plastic period) for Drinking & Preparing Tea for the Picnic Team. II was just a boy of 9 years! We camped somewhat interior of the jutting land mass into the lake which looked almost like island. Old people of 50s & 60s can remember & confirm the purity of this lake in its natural appearance
  • Its a perfect place for a picnic with your family....and a lovely place for the lovers to enjoy the time with their partners.
  • Good place for morning and evening walk. Relaxing place
  • A nice place.
  • The best place in Yangon to have outdoor walk, with some food shops along the lake. In here, people and many agents organize so many activities during the year for ceremonies, holidays and entertainment events. It can be day time or night time, and looks like a Yangon which is smallened. It also can be considered as the center of city. Located on the Pyay road - the "bridge" connecting downtown to countryside, you must pass throught this famous lake any when you come in or go out Yangon.
