  • It was really amazing and most beautyfull holy place. Situated on peak of dark forest fully covered with water.
  • Once a sacred and holy Buddhist lake. Too many tourists during peak season and the water edge gets little dirty. Still a enjoyable walk to the lake and nearby monastery. Don't miss the huge prayer wheel.
  • Khecheopalri Lake. Considered a sacred site, it is revered by both Hindus and Buddhists. Hidden by a rich forest cover, it offers a pristine setting that is perfect for a stroll along the periphery for admiring its beauty. It is also considered a ‘wishing lake’ and it is believed that no leaf remains on its surface at any point in time.
  • One of the holiest lakes in Sikkim. As per local believe this lake is build on footprint of Lord Gautam Buddha's mother. There is a temple at the bottom of lake. Do not miss to trek till the lake view point. From there you can see the actual shape of this lake. At the top one shop is there.
  • Beautiful and serene view. The holy lake gave us peace and helped connect us with our true selves. The scenery is mesmerising and the place is a must visit for all the travellers.
