  • 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.
  • Extremely beautiful place. Surrounded by green trees and hills. The fishes of this lake is amazing. Anyone can feed them. And send some times here to feel something amazing. This is a holy place too.
  • Extremely beautiful place. Amazing Greenery and very beautiful view altogether.
  • Its amazing to visit the holy river of Sikkim. You can see the full view of the lake from the top of the mountain and its awesome.
