You will be covering this anyway as you are taking trip to Bumla pass. But I feel this is a hyped place just because of hindi movie shooting. The approach road to this lake will throw you some good landscapes to take snaps.

You never get to see a lake like this. It is very very unique with trunks of trees rooted in the river. It is beautiful, so is the drive. There is a small shop that sells biscuits, water and basic amenities nearby.
