Lake without water. Cleaning was not there. No boating. No activity. Time waste and extra traveling place.

This quaint lake in the midst of jungle lies on the way from Mcleodganj to Naddi village. It earlier was pretty awesome , but it has dried up, the water level has decreased, and unthinking barbaric tourists have treated it as a garbage disposal.
Still one might stop and spend about 5-10 mins there as it is on the way and no extra effort is needed.

We were there in March and there wasn't much water left in the lake. Not sure if this is due to lack of rainfall or the base of the lake is pervious to water.

This is one of the local sight seeing location in the package, so we visited after visiting the Bhagsunath temple. The lake may be very beautiful when it is full during monsoon season, but since we went in March, the water level was less and was green in colour. The surrounding scenes are really very beautiful and ideal for Photography. i have attached some tell-tale photos

As the lake was under process of cleaning hence there was hardly any water there hence whole charm was gone
