Khecheopalri Lake has been around for 3,500 years and is located at a height of 5,600 feet. It is also known as the residence of Padmasambhava, an 8th-century guru who is thought to be Lord Buddha's second incarnation.

The entrance to the lake goes to its central point through a wooden jetty embellished with prayer wheels, serving as a magical pilgrimage place for both Hindus and Buddhists. The Tibetan flags' flurries create a lovely entrance portal decorated with bamboo and temperate trees. The lake's surrounding foliage creates a perfect recreation area that is difficult to avoid.

The lake appears to be shaped like a foot from an acclivity. Since 3,000 years ago, there has been a widely held belief in the area that Lord Shiva meditated in the cave above the lake, thus the footprint. Buddhists believe that this notion, which is held by Hindus, is the goddess Tara's footprint.

According to folklore, the area should be free of any dirt, trash, or leaves. The lake appears to be unaltered despite being hidden by dense bushes and hedges. The birds continuously swoop up and down to gather whatever debris lands on the surface. If you went to this enchanted lake, you would never see a leaf float on the water.
