Enclosed by a thick forest of cedar trees, Tani Jubbar Lake is a small oval-shaped artificial water-fed lake. The shallow water body is encircled by a paved pathway, flanked by gentle slopes, covered with pine and spruce trees. There is a small temple dedicated to 'Nag Devta', the God of Snakes, on the banks of the lake. The shrine is much revered by the locals as well as people from the surrounding areas. The colorful fair of Tani Jubbar is celebrated annually at Tani Jubbar Lake.

The lake is a perfect place where one can lay back, relax and enjoy the weather as part of Narkanda trip.
