Tourist Information

The composite facilities and amenities of a thriving city can be found spread across the numerous settlements all around the lake shore. Health facilities, sports grounds, entertainment and even a dedicated airport are all near the lake, though one must not forget that it is 77 km long, so travelling from one end to the other can take a while, especially by public transport.
