I visited this in the month December 2016. The place is excellent and calm. Need to get forest permission to go this place. Only concern in this place is there is no rest room for ladies. Please plan accordingly if you are going with family.

Not many options for sight scene so try to visit . Only 25 Pvt vehicle and 50 local tourist vehicle get permission @ Rs 200 per car. So take it in advance or reach at 8am at location. Lake is good.forest road is good. Natural beauty is good.
