KATHMANDU: In an effort to promote tourism and conserve the lake, tasks of infrastructure development have been carried out in Baraha lake at Malika Rural Municipality-7, Myagdi.

Chairman of Malika Rural Municipality-7 Resham Jugjali said a fence around the lake, road, and public toilets have been constructed.

We are working to make this lake a religious and tourist destination, the ward chair said.
He shared that publicity of the lake is also prioritized.

The road was constructed with Rs 1 million in financial assistance from the local government and Rs 300,000 was received for the development of the public toilet in the current fiscal year.

“The lake remained in shadow for lack of publicity. Now, there are increased activities lately,” Chairperson of Users Committee Dek Prasad Phagami said.

The lake is situated at an altitude of 2,200 meters from the sea level having Dhaulagiri and Gurja peaks in its background.

Likewise, a large number of religious visitors throng the Jal Baraha Temple there.
