Mystery is a pure attribute that enhances the beauty of any natural phenomenon on earth. Saqalaksar Lake has this attractive advantage and the presence of half-trunks that protrude from the water, has given an attractive eerie feeling to the lake. The mischief of these helpless trunks is specific to summer, when the volume of water decreases and they have the opportunity to show themselves. There are times when thick fog covers the surface of the lake; If you look at it these days, you will see a haunting image in front of you that uses a lot of imagination .
