Soda Pond

Soda Pond is located at the bottom of Parbubu I Hill village and people called it as 'Aek Rara'. There are so many little bubbles in the pond from natural spring water and soda aroma can be smelled. It is safe for swimming, but should use googles and the peasants use it to watering the paddy fields.[3]
