Historical Embodiment of The Kagbhusandi Lake

Several people who have trekked the lake have claimed that they have seen feathers of crows near the lake. But none of them had ever encountered any suicidal case of crow.

On the spur of Hathi Parvat, two rocks are mounted. People of the region believed that as Kag (Crow) and Garur (Eagle). There, the locals believed that crow is having a detailed discussion with an eagle on universal affairs.
