If you have spare time go and see this place but don't expect so much especially if you come here during summer. Most lake are drying from sun's heat and the scene is a long stretch of black asphalt in the middle (about 100 acres circumference) surrounded with fruit trees and bushes. Wear comfortable shoes/sandal with higher elevation as you walk in soft asphalt and long distance. imagine this place is about 110 acres radius so walking around the area takes time and requires endurance. We actually walk straight in the middle and soaked our feet on small potholes with hot water inside and watch worker digging asphalt for processing. If you suffer from respiratory disease then this place isn't for you because of strong sulfuric smell all around. Don't worry there are locals at the entrance to assist and serves as a guide when you get here. BTW you cannot get inside Lake Pitch without a guide but the price is reasonable and includes entrance to nearby museum. Price varies depending on tour company or taxi you hire from POS. I suggest hiring a taxi at POS and negotiate because it's cheaper than going to a tour company. Plus you can always re-negotiate with the taxi driver to stop at Hanuman Temple en route back to POS. So there you have it, enjoy.
