Fact-Amid thickly forested serene hills is set one of the prettiest mountain lakes in India and the biggest in Himachal — Renuka Lake . At an altitude of 2,132 ft, it is home to thousands of fish, which they say swim fearlessly because of the gentleness of Renukaji, the area’s patron goddess. Right next to it is another lake named after Parashuram, Renuka’s son and the sixth avatar of Vishnu. Renukaji is an important Hindu pilgrimage centre. But it is also a recognised wetland for it supports a wide variety of aquatic creatures and avifauna. On the far end of the lake is a swampy area that attracts migratory birds from Central Asia and Siberia, during winter.
The lake is about 31/2 km in circumference, its shape resembling the profile of a reclining woman. Explore it by boat and take a walk around its periphery.
