  • Half a Century back in 1960 this lake water used to be crystal clear fit enough to drink without even filtering. I had my own experience when I visited this lake on a days picnic from my School. I still remember to have collected water from this lake for drinking, with an aluminium vessel (No plastic period) for Drinking & Preparing Tea for the Picnic Team. II was just a boy of 9 years! We camped somewhat interior of the jutting land mass into the lake which looked almost like island. Old people of 50s & 60s can remember & confirm the purity of this lake in its natural appearance
  • Its a perfect place for a picnic with your family....and a lovely place for the lovers to enjoy the time with their partners.
