Historic Site Tourist Spot
Nestled between easily accessible scenic tea estates, Mirik offers serene natural beauty and a very pleasant climate. Sumendu Lake--the heart of this popular tourist spot--rests surrounded by a vast garden on one side and dhupi (pine) trees on the other, linked together by an arching footbridge. Explore the lake's shoreline on horseback, or rent a shikara (a traditional wooden boat) to pedal through the water. You can observe the entire area from a nearby monastery, perching at an altitude of 1,770 m (5,800 ft); if you opt for this, dress warmly. A visit to Mirik represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Mirik vacation route planner to plot your vacation.
