“A lake in need”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

Lake Pashan, a man made dam was originallybuilt to provide water to the adjacent towns and farms . A combination of silt build up, pollution and the spreading of a weed called Pistia are slowly killing it, despite efforts by the PMC and locals to improve the quality of the water. It is a stopping off point for some migratory bird species and it is home to a wide variety of birds.
There are no facilities and access is next to a temple which is worth a visit .Several families live next to the lake edge in extremely basic conditions
Locals said they can still catch small fish at the right time of the year.
If you're into bird watching its certainly worth a visit with your camera, otherwise theres not much to attract visitors. A muddy track runs along the north western edge of the lake for several hundred meters
