When water jounces with the banks of the lake, it gives a sweet melodious sound. Trout and snow carp fish are found in this lake in large quantity. The water of lake is so crystalline that the stones of different colors and trout fish can be seen easily.
At some distance from the lake there is a river called Kala Pani (Black Water). This unique name is due to black stones at the bottom of the river. Another river is Bara Pani (Big Water). It is the largest river ofDeoSai.
