Guide for tourists

The best time to visit the magical lake is from June to September because due to heavy snowfall the lake is frozen completely in winters.

At day time the temperature is very pleasant (15 to 20 degree centigrade) however, at night it drops to about 3 degree centigrade

Oh yes, boating facility is also available there. But you must do it at your own risk because the lake debt is still unknown. Unluckily, there is no rescue system.

You can do camping as well; basic facilities are available.

Also, you can enjoy horse riding.
