I had heard of this lake for many years and had been desirous of visiting this lake having lived in Arunachal Pradesh for more than 5 years.
My chance to see it came this month when we visited Pangsau Pass. This lake is in Myanmar, a few kilometres from International Border. As there was shortage of time with us, we saw it from the crest of the International Border. The lake looked beautiful. I wished to go near the lake which has so much history but time shortage and the fact that it was in Myanmar prevented us from going there.
I looked at the lake for sometime, though from a distance and imagined how this lake was mistaken as a soft landing point by allied fighter planes and in the process both the planes and the pilots were lost. There are stories about loss of lives when Stilwell Road from India to China was being made during World War II. It is interesting to hear stories associated with the lake but nobody knows the truth behind the stories.
Its location, its history make it an interesting place to visit.
