In the first article of this blog, related to Himachal Pradesh General Studies, we will study about various lakes of Himachal Pradesh.
I have compiled a list of lakes and arranged them in District wise order.
These lakes include the popular ones like Rewalsar Lake, Chandra Tal Lake, Renuka Lake, as well the remote and unseen lakes, that bother the aspirants the most during an entrance examination. Some of them are Dashaur Lake (Kullu), Bhrigu Lake (Kullu), Dana Sar (Kangra), Nain Sar Lake (Kullu), Chamunda Lake (Chamba), Lake Yangcho in Lahaul & Spiti, Yulla Kanda lake (Kinnaur), Khajund Lake, Khundi or Kundi Maral Lake in Chamba and Chakund Lake (Chamba), Saru Tal Lake in Chanshal Ghati, Shimla , Bradonsar Lake, Shimla etc.
Upon request, I can even share photographs of these lakes with my readers.
I have compiled a list of 43 lakes, and I will keep on adding more to this list, as I get to know more about these lakes.
Kindly point out mistakes in the comment section, if any!
