Tsomgo also known as Changu, is an oval shaped glacial lake which is a must on every visitor’s itinerary. A 1 hour drive from The Elgin Nor-Khill, Gangtok, the winding road treats you with a scenic natural area that features a lake surrounded with snow-capped mountains. At an elevation of 3753m the placid lake remains frozen with the area covered in snow during winter and melts during the summer to form a water body.
Only mountains can feel the frozen warmth of the sun through snow’s gentle caress on their peaks. – Ankita
A Tibetan prayer flag is a colourful rectangular cloth, often found strung along trails and peaks in the Himalayas. They are used to bless the surrounding with a positive energy.
