The Chamera Lake is fed through the year from the Ravi river. The water of this lake can also be used for irrigation for the neighboring locations. The region is surrounded by mountains and valleys surrounded by beautiful pine woods. Throughout winters it snows in the high reaches and so the surrounding mountains and hills are covered in snow making it a stunning view.
