Gods Abode

Review by: Saumya Mukherjee

The Gurudongmar lake in North Sikkim is considered to be one of the most beautiful and sacred lakes in India. It sources water to the river Teesta. The water of this lake is said to have curative properties. This lake is majestic emerald blue in colour and is surrounded by snow-capped mountains and a glacier with the same name. A trip to Gurudongmar is certainly an experience of a lifetime.
The best time to visit the Gurudongmar lake is from November to June. A visit to Gurudongmar Lake requires a permit as it is located close to the Indo-Tibet border. There is paucity of oxygen at such a height, and thus, staying there for more than an hour is not recommended for most tourists.
