Report: Its as close to perfect wilderness as you can get while enjoying the comfort of a nice little resort with well provided basic amenitites. The Lake is serene and beautiful with conifer covered mountains yawning down on it wrapped in a world of clouds with a listless, temperamental beauty - melancholy and calm. If you are looking for some peace and refuge away from the city life... this is it. Do not miss the falls nearby specially Tokete and Lemolo falls.
