Needless to say, me, along with 4 of my co-travellers, in sheer lunacy that took us over at the sight of the entranced lake circumvented the lake, soaking in the beauty and a thousand views all along. It is during this time that we realized how the lake had a million tints of blue up its sleeve, from sapphire to turquoise to tiffany blue, depending on where from you were looking at it; in all fairness out of bounds to people who stare at this beauty from a distance away. The plan was hatched the previous night while taking a stroll after dinner with two strangers in Lachen. We realized if we had made it this far, we couldn't return without walking around the lake.The only setback was that we had no idea that it would be such a big perimeter, not unless and until we returned to Gangtok and looked it over on Google and admire ourselves at achieving this phenomenal feat in under 3 hours in extreme conditions. Well, sometimes it's one's will, sometimes madness and sometimes sheer determination coupled to discipline that is needed to cross over the line. And most importantly, the sound of your comrades ringing in your ears continuously asking you to go on and telling how the target is within your reach. And so in the end there was the lake, hideously grand and gorgeously breathtaking in the rear views of my eyes. It hurts me to say goodbyes to such places; I returned, my chalice of my heart filled up to the brim with joy of accomplishment and senses bewitched with wonders this nature hold.
