It is one of the most valued tourist attractions of Gangtok. The beautiful lake is often covered by a snowy hill on the left and an arid hill on the right making it a spectacular viewing point. The crystal blue water in the lake brings about a mesmeric feel to the entire region. The lake often reaches freezing temperatures so caution is advised. Tsongmo Lake is located just 39.2 km from our Gangtok hotel.
The Rumtek Monastery is one of the biggest monasteries in Sikkim, located over a hill 23 km from Gangtok. Initially, it was called the Dharma Chakra Center. The monastery is surrounded by verdant green mountains and in this serves as a visual treat other than being a point of convergence for divinity and exploration. Rumtek Monastery is located 16.2 km from our Gangtok hotel.
