Bogakain Lake, also known as Baga Lake or Boga Lake, is a lake located in Ruma Upazila, Bandarban Hill District, Bangladesh. It is a natural freshwater and deep water lake. Its height is about 1,246 feet (380 meters) above sea level.
Geologists believe that it was created by collecting rainwater in the summer. The lake is irregular in shape. A team of geologists surveyed the lake in 1979. By that year, the water in the lake had become abundant with plants and fish. The locals gather tilapia fish in this lake
The Baom people migrated from Saikot Para to Lake and established this village.
According to local legend, the lake was created after killing the inhabitants of Khumi village and later devouring a deity who later appeared to them in the form of a dragon. Immediately there was an earthquake, the shore of the mountains fell. And the village disappeared and formed a deep lake.
