  • It takes a while to walk to the lake but it is worth it. Pack a lunch and beverage and eat on the shore of the lake. Pack a light jacket in case in rains.

  • Views from here are absolutely fantastic. It's certainly worth the trek here. It takes around 50 minutes to reach here from the First cliff walk. There are two lakes here and the water is crystal...
