  • A relaxing walk is worth your while. DRess properly if it is winter time though. There are many attractions on the lake and around it. 
  • Apart from the geyser gigantic and high that there, not there is much more in that Lake, can take one of their boats to go to another. But little more is exploited the shore and a ride that is interesting to do around
