The Lake consist of many other floating islands which sustain fishermen villages and are also made of organic waste.

Boating and Photography are the most enjoyable experiences here. You get to witness the lives and livelihoods of local fishermen and how they survive in such unique conditions while you are at this place. As the place has a diverse fish life, widely caught by the fishermen communities here, it provides you the opportunity to taste some mouthwatering fresh lake fish like Major Carp and Grass Carp.
