It is amazing to see blue and green lake adjacent side by side. Surrounding by its white glowing elevated overburden this ex-tin mining soon becoming a famous tourist destination. There also some knick knacks that made it instagramable spots. Cool.

Suprisingly blue water, green water. It takes around 1.5 hours by motorbike from Pangkal Pinang to get here but it is totally worth it. This place is indcredible. You have to visit this place.
