Mammals, reptiles and insects find their ideal habitat in the lake vegetation. In spring the water lilies come to bloom and the pond turns yellow.

Author’s recommendation

The wooden pier is an ideal viewpoint to look at the lake and the surrounding mountains. In the Visitor Centre the lake can be viewed through the eyes of its inhabitants.
