Formed by a flash flood after an earthquake in the year 1950, Madhuri Lake is originally known as Shonga-tser Lake, which is one of the most popular lakes in Tawang, Arunachal Pradesh. The lake was renamed so after the shooting of Bollywood movie Koyla, starring Madhuri Dixit, the beautiful actress. The lake has been surrounded by wonderfully lush valleys, and snow-capped mountains. A leisure walk is the best way to explore the picturesque surroundings of the lake.
The lake is managed by the Indian Army. There is a cafeteria too, near the lake where visitors can relish Maggi, Momos, with a cup of tea or coffee. The best time to visit Madhuri Lake is between April and October as during the rest of the year, the area is frozen.
