The scenery is breathtaking, as the lake is surrounded by high leafy mountains, and the area is considered to be a "paradise" for all the lovers of nature as it provides possibilities for climbing, fishing, and generally for practicing all kinds of mountain-sports, and of course trekking in the forest. The main motive for someone to go on this trip is primarily visiting a new place, but also getting away from routine, limitations and stress of everyday life.
