The Lake is so clear and clean that everything around it is reflected on it. Due to the rock flour that settled at the bottom also, its water has  shades of blue.

Beautiful is an understatement. 🙂

This place is magnificent in any weather. But I love its winter wonderland look more.

I hope you enjoy the video as much as I did… 🙂
