After a brief stop over at the Kilimta lake where I did some videography we moved towards the main attraction point for the day The Madhuri lake . This is the most famous lake of the region named after. The actress Madhuri Dixit , it was the spot where her film Koyla was shot with Shahrukh Khan and Amrish Puri . This lake was at the centre of the valley and was covered by green mountains with a sky full of mist . It had been drizzling that day and the air was chilly , I walked down towards the great still lake , the water was crystal clear and their were huge lumps of tree trunks with sharp jagged edges coming out from the bottom of the lake , the lake was full of these tree trunks jutting out in the air , I guess that was what gave it it’s uniqueness . Their was a cafeteria and a a few check posts of the army in the area , but a lot of tourists had arrived to see this wondrous lake . One could do some boating if they wished or just still around the lake admiring the pink and purple flowers that covers it’s green banks . Their was a sign boarding saying “ Madhuri Point .”
I stopped over to take in the view and even touched the cool crisp water . It was meal time with idili and dosa that was served to us along with hot tea . The whole place had a feeling of crispness the mist and the lake blended into each other from time to Time . Sometimes it was difficult to see the lake ether was so much mist around .They sake the lakes here freeze in the winter and so does the Madhuri lake . bUt no doubt it has captured a place in Indian Bollywood history as the. Place where Rakesh Roshan’s Koyla was shot .
The banks of the lake are rich green with grass , the moisture and cool air of the region insures the highest quality of grass and vegetation in the region .This region is also full of water fleas large and small so their is abundance of fresh pure water which makes the land fertile and rich with minerals . Ashoka the great when he renounced the world and became a Buddhist Monk , came here to preach Buddhism . A lot of the old buddhist scriptures were also written in Pali which was the language of the Ashoka Dynasty .
For me it was choli ke peachy kya hai ! Yes Madhuri lake was a surprise for me , it was most enchanting and a very invigorating experience just being their and walking all around the lake .
