Sequestering amidst the imposing ranges of the Garhwal region, this green triangular lake offers an ambiance of serenity. The lake is said to have a deep set connection with the Hindu mythology as the three corners of the lake are believed to be the sacred part of the holy trinity, namely, Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh (Lord Shiva) who are reckoned to have meditated at three of the respective corners. Many devout pilgrims also trek to this lake for bathing here on solar and lunar fortnights as it is considered most auspicious.
