Usually after visit Arberotum (Nyaru Menteng) people visit this lake. Honestly I didn't interest at the first time when I arrived at the gate. They didn't manage it well as a nature tourist destination. Actually the location is in the middle of traditional village and it's good to combine the object with the village life. But I don't know why... More

My first impression of this lake was the quiteness. We can only hear the sound of crickets. The view is very nice, if you take the picture of the lake, you can see the reflection of the blue sky and the trees on the lake. Try it..
