Along with enjoying the blue lake of birisiri, you can explore the china clay hill around the lake area. There are several hillocks around the lake. You can climb few of those to get the feelings of hiking.

The reason behind exploring the clay hill is its colorful soil. You’ll possibly find almost every color there from the rainbow. Sometimes you might feel that the soil was burnt or something like that, but it’s the natural clay having such color.
