Inspirock Rating:
4.6/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web
Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and picturesque scenery of Tsomgo Lake, a sacred body of water nestled at 3,753 m (12,313 ft) in the Himalayan mountains. Take a drive up from Gangtok to the lake area, and admire the scenic surroundings along the way, or enjoy a ride around the lake on a colorfully decorated yak. In summer and fall, you’ll encounter colorful alpine flowers, such as rhododendrons and primulas, around the azure, oval lake, while in the winter you’ll find the lake frozen and the area covered in snow. To visit the lake, you’ll need to obtain a permit from the tourist information center. Tsomgo Lake is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Gangtok Edition.

  • Nice Lake, good view point for clicks . . Also option to get clicked with the Yaks.More beautiful view during winters / snow 
  • This is on way to Nathula pass and nothing great to enjoy to appreciate. probably when there is snow, it may look beautiful. There are yak rides if you want to take pictures. 
  • This lake is so still, calm and beautiful. This lake is on the way to Nathula and you could get chance to ride yaks from here and to try out some Sikkimese attires. 
  • The serenity will surely mesmerize the human soul ! The best place to be...
