It is just a snowy place on the way to Tawang, nice lake side by. We spent half an hour for photos. No facilities for refreshments or good toilets.

Visited in the month of February. The Lake was completely hard frozen. My kid got crazy to run and have fun over the lake. The vehicle must have chain around the wheel otherwise it'll be highly risky.Little bit difficult for the senior citizens.
