About Shonga-tser Lake

Shonga-tser Lake is also called as Madhuri Lake, named after the famous Bollywood actress Madhuri Dixit. The lake was formed as a result of an earthquake in this region back in 1971. This place was grassland until then, serving to the cattle of the locals. The place is now an ideal tourist destination with an amazing view of the picturesque snow capped mountains and the valleys. The lake also offers an absolute delight to the photographers here. Shonga-tser Lake is located at about 12000 feet height above sea level. The water in the lake is crystal clean and the magic of it reflecting the colour of blue sky is simply an awesome sight. There are numerous dead tree trunks still in the lake, which emerges from clear water by creating a beautiful imagery for the photographers. The tourists can simply stroll around the lake and enjoy the natural beauty of the places around. One need to carry food while planning for a trip to Shonga-tser Lake as there is nothing available to purchase in the vicinity.
