Must see place.

Best frozen lake after winter. I enjoyed a lot. But do not expect ice all the time. You can take photos walk over the lake when it is completely frozen in/ after winter.

It is good. But of late human activity is spoiling the natural beauty. We preferred another lake on the way to Baba Mandir which comes after Tsomgo lake. The view from the top is really good

The lake is a good view but nothing great. One can get clicked in traditional dresses with yaks beside the beautiful lake. Too much crowd can spoil the serenity. Can visit on the way to Nathula.

In November it was Chilly but there was no ice. So best time to visit it is when there is snow fall. The lake lies alongside the road from Gangtok... More

Good view at the lake and while riding there! The river, yak rides and the various military check points are good to see. Start early since I was told after 10am, entry will be stopped at the check post.
