The following is a video documenting the condition of Setu Patok Lake in the summer of October 10, 2023. The video was recorded at 4 pm with the sun feeling hot but not too hot. The stalls (or warung as locals call it) seemed to be visited by many travelers who were chatting with colleagues accompanied by a cup of coffee and some light snacks while they were sheltering there.
Many rice fields have been harvested with the remains burned so that the land can be re-cultivated and plants planted. The smoke from burning harvest residue was carried by the wind and covered many stalls. When the sun began to set the farmers then went home.
