The Kajin Sara lake in Manang district was discovered about a few months ago by a team of mountaineers, around the lake there few unclimbed mountains which are very interesting peaks for alpine climbing and explore. It is located at Singarkharka area of Chame rural municipality.

 

"As per the measurement of the lake taken by the team, it is located at an altitude of 5,200 meters, which is yet to be officially verified. It is estimated to be 1,500-metre-long and 600-meter-wide,"
