the lake area is under renovation and would take around a year to complete. Horse Ride charges are Rs 160 per person. Pedal boats services are available from 10 am to 4 pm.

This is the heart of Mirik. Really a scenic lake with some European looking trees. It gives tranquility and peace in minds. A must visit in Darjeeling region.

It's a nice lake, if you are staying in Mirik, it's beautiful place for morning walk around the lake. Boating facility too is available. There are carts selling snacks like momos. Maintenance could be better.
