This lake has beautiful views when frozen. Near to this lake you clicks photographs with Yaks. Usually newly wed couples visit this place. Not a very exciting place for bachelors

Name of this lake is known as Changu Lake not as Tsomgo Lake so better be informed. It is covered wid Nathula & Baba Mandir. Do not skip even if ua not lucky to grab Nathula Paas.

Took permit to see this lake. While it is only 50 km from gangtok the journey is time consuming due to the terrain It was the most memorable place one should not miss in Sikkim. The yak ride and the snow fall makes it enchanting Weather could be dampener as many vehicles get stuck in the ice. Permits are required... More

Must visit place in Gangtok, view of lake is out of this world.. Journey to get there from Gangtok takes almost 1.5 hrs, drive is exciting.. Our luck we had an excellent driver so didn't feel any motion sickness inspite of many hairpin bends..

Gets pretty cold so always carry jackets & wear shoes, sandles will be too cold. Many get altitude sickness so (locals suggest you eat popcorns on your way up). Once you reach up the view is worth it , if u come to gangtok must not miss visiting.
