(2,400+ reviews on the web)
Water Body Nature / Park
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.
