The water temperature fluctuates in the summer from 6 to 8 degrees Celsius. The name of the lake is translated as “incoming water” because the lake is submerged type. Sometimes the lake disappears, leaking into underground caves and caverns. Before going there, it is necessary to know if there is water in the lake.[:]
