This lake is very beautiful, nestled between mountains and tourists love it. No wonder it is somehow crowded in most places which takes away something magical from the experience.
Amazing place absolutely amazing. Have no words to describe how much we enjoyed our visit. Lake with amazing nature. Mountains and rocks are so beautiful. There are so many sports spots. Every village is different but so nice. Love it.
