Gorgeous Madhuri lake

Tawang is surrounded by gorgeous lakes. Shungester lake, famously known as Lake" after the Bollywood diva Madhuri Dixit shot a song in that lake, is one of the most famous ones. It is believed that this lake was created by flash floods following an earthquake and it still has these dreary tree stumps punctuating its calm waters. Though beautiful, it had a spooky air about it.

The most beautiful lake

While on the way to this like I was very sick but as soon as I arrived at the so called Madhuri Lake my eyes and jaws were all left opened. It is the most beautiful attraction of Tawang. A must visit place with zero occupancy.

A crystal clear water, no shops on the way

This is a 'Must See' place if someone visits Tawang. Hire a car from Tawang (Cost will be around Rs. 3000 if you hire the full car instead of sharing with anyone else) and take a one and a half hour journey through the narrow roads criss crossing the light green and brownish hills. Until you reach Madhuri Lake situated at 12000 ft above sea level. Formed as a result of an earthquake, this water body is crystal clear and reflects the color of the blue sky. Numerous dead tree trunks, which once were alive (before the earthquake) emerges from the blue water of the lake creating a strange yet beautiful imagery before visitors. One can stroll around the lake with their families and enjoy the natural beauty of the place. It's better to carry your own food with you as nothing is available for purchase in near vicinity of lake and there are no shops.
