HISTORY

This beautiful lake is an aftermath of an earthquake. It used to be an open pasture where shepherds used to get their flocks to graze. But a devastating earthquake in 1950 resulted in the lake being formed. The falling rocks, trees and boulders during the earthquake gave birth to this beautiful lake.
