Beautiful lake surrounded by mountains. Take a boat ride or a relaxing stroll. You can also take helicopters here.

Nice place, especially for kids. So many interesting activities ranging from paddle boat rides to zip lining!! Plenty of places to relax by the lake too.

It is a very nice place to visit, walk and relax. Since we went very late couldnt enjoy. That said, please be aware vendors over-charge foreigners whenever they could!

Picturesque lake. Was beautiful first thing in the morning when the mist was still in the valley. Cows grazing in the fields round the lake made it really beautiful but it is next to the main road so was a bit noisy.

We rode boats, paddle boats and skee dos...staff were very helpful. Prices were very reasonable but just go in the earlier part of the day. Horserides are available but horse mess is not cleaned up during the day....wear easy to remove covered shoes! Lots of fun!

The lake has an entrance fee. Paved double walkway around one half. There are small food kiosks and toilets. A paddling boat or launch can be hired for an hour. Also a pony ride is offered. Negotiate as usual. Sit in restaurant at one edge has a limited western menu. Similar to many parks and lakes in Europe minus ponies.... More

Took a 30 minute boat trip around lake. Missy hills so not much scenery. Boat smelly with diesel fumes. Rained+++ Nothing special. Wouldn't recommend.
