When you are coming back from Tiger hill you can see this lake on the left side from top. There are good trees with flowers in white, red and pink colours. This lake can be seen in between some trees with white flowers and it is a great view to click some good photos.

This lake is hidden in between the mountains.. Even a glimpse from the top of hills is beautiful. You can see variety of vegetation and birds around this place. You can sit relax and sip tea while enjoying this gift of nature.
