Really pretty lake with a cruise that takes you out and around with some cultural singers placed around. Nice enough for a half day.

It is a nice and relaxing part of our tour where you board a boat for a ride with guide around the lake. The surrounding scenery is just moderate as there is not a lot of unique rock formation to see. The waterfall at the...More

This facility has been created for tourists. There are better mountains, lakes and scenic areas in the world. if you are a hiker you may love it. It is overcrowded.

When you arrive, go past where you buy the tickets to where you get on a bus - there's a wooden sign with a map there which will show you where you can go. Didn't do it myself but the route is on there!

yes, you can take a walk to the boat instead of taking the bus, when you get inside the entrance, you will see a road for the shuttel bus, the walk way is on the rightside of the road. left is for bus, right is for walking... More
We went there early mornings and it really rained all night, they just opened the boom gate - no water, no water noise or so very little did come down from that waterfall, but all over sudden like it was just switched on, here was the waterfall and the near empty creek bed also had all over sudden water in it. That all this water comes through a hole in the mountain to create a waterfall so suddenly and it comes naturally is a bit of a myth - or is it ?? We also noticed there is a gravel filter on the lakes water exit before the water enters the slightly hidden opening or cave to appear on the other side as the waterfall. It is nice, we liked it, very idyllic even mystic, worth the walk to go up there and looking around - even with the rain we had - but occurring natural ??? .......as nature has created ?? ....we id not buy that!
