Create an itinerary including Tsongmo Lake
Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere and picturesque scenery of Tsongmo 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. Take a look at our Gangtok trip builder site to schedule your visit to Tsongmo Lake and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.
