Lake Tsongmo is one of the most beautiful lakes in Sikkim, placed in the lap of the great Himalayas. Located at a distance of about 40 km from Gangtok, at an altitude of 12300 ft, the Lake is an absolutely stunning natural beauty. What makes this lake even more attractive and spectacular, is that the water of the lake changes its colours with the changing seasons.
The Lake gets frozen during winters, and the whole surrounding is covered in a layer of beautiful white, while during spring, the blossoming flowers around the lake render the lake looking magnificent in multicolour. The Lake is of great historical and cultural significance, as it is greatly revered by the locals of the valley, as well as the Buddhist monks. Legend has it that, in the old days, the Buddhist monks used to foretell the future by analyzing the changing colour of the Lake.
