Reed Lake in Chin state is known as one of the most bucolic spots in Myanmar, and now it can be enjoyed from a scenic viewing point. The heart-shaped lake is situated in Falam township of Chin state. The viewing station for Reed Lake was built at a cost of Ks1.5 million by the Bwarnae Company. Under the guidance of Reed Khaw Da Town Administrator, the construction of the scenic viewing station was done with labour contributed by officials from various departments and ward administrators.
Situated between Chin and Indian mountain ranges near the Indo-Myanmar border, Reed Lake is 2,800 feet above sea level, has a 3-mile circumference and is about 60 feet deep. An attempt was made to drain the lake during the British colonial era, but, according to lore, all the workers died of a mysterious plague. The lake turns into a reddish color every December.
