This is Natural lake with lots of Birds and Lotus flowers. Its not too deep, can visited using Palm tree boats. But this lake is located around 50 kms far from Vizag and its very remote location area. Worth visiting.

This lake is a hidden beauty. Its a pleasure to see nature not tampered. Beautiful lake, with lots of lotus flowers and special boating on logs of palm tree make this place unique.
