Had a boat ride to do this sight seeing. The first stop is looking at the pregnant maiden hill from afar to appreciate it. Was very scenic going to the hidden lake but a bit of hiking to reach it, and many pesty monkeys to meet before you get there. Remember not to take any food with you or if... More

The boat ride to this island is very scenic. One needs to walk for around 200m to reach the lake. The lake is very beautiful and we went on a solar boat ride and it started raining and had to come back after few min. People are allowed to swim in the lake. It is not recommended for aged people.

We chartered a boat for the day to take us sight-seeing and visited several isalnds close by. We picknicked on on one of these islands - name forgotten - before our boat-man suggested we hike up the hill through the wooded terrain to go see the lake of the Pregnant Maiden - well known locally to have a romantic legend...

The boat ride to the island where this lake is located is scenic. And the island and the lake looked pretty good as well.

Lovely fresh water lake. Don't take bags of food with you though as the pesky monkeys will steal it from you!

We stop over at this island on our way for another trip at around 45 minutes. A nice short trek from the jetty to the lake, do watch out on the monkeys gather around the jetty. As many tourists like to feed them, they have been pampered until will grab anything you hold on your hand. The best way to... More

Beautiful island. We went to see it as part of a Jetski tour. One thing to watch out for: too many monkeys!!

Beautiful sights and the water is perfect for a dip. It's a great stop if you are island hopping. I'd watch out for monkeys, they will try to grab anything you are carrying.

Words would not do justice on how beautiful this natural lake is. Since we travelled during the low peak season, there weren't many people there. The surrounding is serene and the lake is calm. Do take sometime to read about the lake as there are lots of signages available to provide you with the information you require. It would be... More

Sweet water lake in a crater. A bit spooky but worth taking a quick dip if you get the chance. Those with creaky knees should be prepared to go up and down a fair number of stairs.
