This Land of the Dawn-Lit Mountains is a beauty full of mystery and wonder. It is home to mesmerising sceneries, some exotic birds and animals, different culture, many tribes, and more. Speaking of the mystery part, there is a lake in Arunachal Pradesh which is also known as India's Bermuda Triangle. This 'lake of no return' has its own set of stories, which will for sure give you goosebumps.
For those who don't know, Bermuda Triangle, it is a region in the North Atlantic Ocean where many aircrafts and ships are said to have disappeared mysteriously. Imagine the same being in India, that too in Arunachal!
This lake borders between India and Myanmar also called ‘Lake of No Return’. The tale around this is that whatever or whoever goes near the lake has never returned to tell the tale. It is 1.4 km in length and 0.8 km in width.
What makes us think so? Well, it is said that during the Second World War, the pilots of the American Air Force had to make an emergency landing on the ground but both the pilots and the plane disappeared under mysterious circumstances. Another proof is that the American soldiers, who were working in the area had been sent to find out what happened to those soldiers but even they disappeared without a trace.
Now this story for sure is famous. After the Second World War, when the Japanese soldiers were returning, they lost their way. When they reached the lake, they got lost in quicksand and disappeared.
We are not saying that do not visit this place. Tourists and adventurers do go there. They camp a little far off but they never go near it. It is said that many have tried to understand the logistics but all those efforts have gone in vain.
Besides this lake, there are many more lakes in Arunachal which are extremely safe and a treat to the eyes. Here are some of the really famous ones:
