The lake is located two kilometers from the village of Pigniu. It is about 1.5 kilometers long and about 250 meters wide. It is fed by some nameless mountain streams. Around the lake leads an easy-to-walk walking or walking path. For the circumnavigation you need about an hour. On the west side, several large waterfalls plunge into the valley in the rear part.
