More travellers have come to Rih Lake, which is one of the famous tourist sites in Chin State, during the December holiday period.
Rih Lake, also known as Heart Shape Lake, is 2,966 feet above sea level in Chin State. It is located in Reedkhawda at the border of Myanmar and India, about 90 miles from Kalay, Sagaing region.
“We’ve travelled to Rih Lake from Yangon. I visited there with my friends during the holidays because we wanted to see the nature of Chin Hills. This is our first time to visit Rih Lake, even though it is our second visit to Chin Hills. Rih Lake is more beautiful than we thought. The water of Rih Lake flows slowly at this time. We are happy to see that. We are amazed to see the red water of the lake. We have planned to visit Khaw Nu Soum Mountain (Mount Victoria) in Chin State (South)” said Ma Aye Thandar, a visitor from the Yangon Region.
During December holidays, most travelers who visit Rih Lake are from Yangon, Mandalay, Sagaing and Magway regions, as well as other townships in Chin State. Moreover, the lake receives visitors from India, along with other ethnic groups. Visitors can either stay overnight or return on the same day by public bus and in their own vehicles. A small golf course is being built near Rih Lake to promote tourism.
This year has seen many local travelers arriving at Rih Lake.—Pakkar (Rih lake) (Translated by Hay Mar)
