It's beside vagamon meadows/barren hills... It's very small lake... As of now don't expect any boating as well.. Some construction is going on to make it more beautiful so best to visit after couple of months or just after rainy season...

Games here are a good time pass. Boating around the grasslands is relaxing and they close it during the rain.
