Thangu, Thangu Valley, Sikkim 737120, India
This is the last spot where you will find civilian settlement on the way to Gurudongmar Lake. Perfect place to have breakfast and then leave for the holy lake. It is at a height of 14000 ft and if you want some last minute shopping, this is the place.

Gurudongmar Road, Thangu, Thangu Valley, Sikkim 737120, India
Gurudongmar lake is one peaceful place to be. It is one of the highest lakes in the world, located at an altitude of 17,800 ft (5,430 m) in the Indian state of Sikkim. It is a lake which is considered sacred by both Buddhists and Sikhs. The lake is named after Guru Padmasambhava, also known as Guru Rinpoche, founder of Tibetan Buddhism who visited the lake in the 8th century. The whole journey to that point is calming and also a challenge. You go around the month of April and you realize how beautiful a place, where you can hardly breath as there is very thin air up at 18000 ft, can it be(Source- Google). It is said to be a holy place to visit as the Sikhs say that their guru had passed along that lake and in literal words Gurudongmar means door to the lord. We had hired a vehicle(bolero) and we started at 5 am in the morning and reached around 10 or 10:30.
