A pleasant walk around the lake or along the numerous walks in the heavily forested ridges; would all go to make a lovely holiday.

  • Kawlay Dara Walk - The 'Kawlay Dara' is one such high-spot that could make one feel up in the clouds. A stroll (about a twenty-minute walk) up to it could offer an exhilarating moment, or one could even hitch a pony or a cab ride until a certain distance and then shuffle up to it. As glimpses of the rising sun or the fiery sunset, the breathtaking landscape all around, and the plains far below begin to materialise, life trails on to a different tune.

Bunkulung Village Excursion
  • Bunkulung Village Excursion - An old fishing village, which has gradually turned agrarian over the years, can be accessed by a cab or hiked through a village trail. In recent times it was developed as a model fishery village.

A picturesque village in the foothills just above the river, its beauty is further heightened by lovely hills looming on all sides and a dense patch of temperate forest. MORE
