Lovely place to stroll , but better off season, when it is quiet and peaceful. Nice to sit out and have a picnic by the lake. Recommend it, but not in April.

A more European style place. A relax place, good for couples and family to spend their holiday. Close to the tea plantation area. Pretty cool there, remember to bring a light jacket.

The lake is nestled in an area surrounded by mountains. The place is fresh, green & beautiful. The lake has boating activities.There were'nt too many people making it peaceful.

Dirty, unimpressive lake with nothing to see really - Why bother? There is absolutely not even a thing to see here and lake itself is small and dirty.

Nice view. Cold at night but quite warm during the day. There are good water activities like speed boat rides and canoeing.

The lake is huge and beautiful. The depth is approximately 40 ft. Lot of boating rides are available. Really loved ride on speed boat. Water Jet was awesome. Its bit on expensive side for tourists but worth it. Entrance fees is 500 including parking for vehicle, if any. The landscape is equally beautiful and very clean.
