, Kailash Mansarovar

Rakshas Tal at a height of 4515 meters bears a legend associated with the demon King Ravana. Rakshas tal and Manasarovar are considered as sister lakes and are divided by a narrow hill.

Legend has it that Ravana had performed austerities here to appease Lord Shiva and being pleased by his devotion the lord allowed him to ask any boon. Ravana asked the god to leave Kailash and the lord readily agreed to stay with Ravana on a condition that Ravana should not put the lord down on the earth. But Ravana could not succeed in keeping his words since the God of Water entered his stomach. As Lord Varuna himself had occupied Ravana's tummy there was an incessant pour of water out of Ravana, which fashioned the lake Rakhsas Tal. This story has gained momentum among the devotees and none dares to taste the water of this kund since it is considered as inauspicious. Like its name Rakshas Tal appears dull and grumpy and it hence it is often linked with the forces of darkness.

Apart from its mythological significance, Rakshas Tal offers mind blowing sites of two beautiful islands.
