Khecheopalri Lake

Khecheoplari Tsho is a huge lake found 27 kms from Pelling and is a very common visitor touring point. The lake is thought to be one of the sacred pools of Sikkim. The lake stays covered up in the rich forest spread. It is said that birds don't allow even a solitary leaf to glide on the Khecheoplari lake surface. There is a motorable street from Pelling straight up to the lake area. The spot is well known among trekkers. There is also a mobile trail from Pelling to Khecheoplari (5 hours). It is also possible to trek to Yuksom from Khecheoplari which takes 4 hours. For those keen on spending a night or two in this spot, there are a couple of basic inns in the town close-by. There is also a traveler's hut intended to give housing to the general population who go on pilgrimage trips to visit Khecheoplari. The tour begins at Pelling and proceeds through Darap Village and Rimbi falls before coming to Khecheoplari.

Khecheopalri Lake: We headed out to hit our next place, which was Khecheopalri or Kha-Chot-Palri as locally known. This holy lake is known as Buddhist as well as Hindu pilgrim. The lake is surrounded by huge forest and uncountable fishes in it. This lake is an ideal place of adventure lovers, as this place has a viewpoint, which is called Khecheopalri View Point and people have to trek to reach that point. The viewpoint is around 700-800 meters up trekking distance from the lake, and your foot is the only option you will left! ???? After all the hovering, we finally reached our targeted viewpoint, I was stunned with its majestic view from the top. You can see the whole lake from the top. And please do try the Egg Maggi and Chai from the stall on the viewpoint, it was awesome!

My next stop was Khecheopalri Lake. It's the holy place for Buddhists. The nature surrounding was picturesque. This beautiful spot kind of rebooted my soul, I must say. The dogs near this place were very friendly. I enjoyed the calmness and serenity for a while and got myself ready to the next stop.
