Changu Lake, or locally called the Tsomgo Lake is a lake in Sikkim, 40 kilometers from Gangtok situated at a height of 13,000 feet above sea level. Not many people have heard about it but the place is really beautiful to visit.
I visited Gangtok in March 2018 and we found the lake to be frozen. The lake is located in the lap of the surrounding hills which receives a good amount of snowfall. When we went to the place, the snow was starting to melt. As a result the place was very slippery; even the lake was frozen at the sides.
The place is 40 kilometers from the capital city of Gangtok and the temperatures are almost in negative throughout the year. This was me at 2 degree Celcius at the Changu, seeing snow for the first time in life!
