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.
