Gurudongmar lake is one of the highest lakes in the world at 17,800 ft. from sea-level. It's situated in North Sikkim near to the India-China border. We visited end-April and the whole lake was frozen.... a really spectacular site. And there are mighty Himalayan mountains on back-side, which makes this amazingly pretty lake. Journey to the lake is quite long... More

High Altitude Terrains in Himalayas are always worth Seeing & more attractive when the entire route is Motorable . So I took the oppurtunity to visit Gurudongmar Lake(18000ff) twice , Once in April 2012 , repeated in April 2015 .. It is near to India China Border so the access to this Destination is controlled by Permission only . The... More

If you are fearful of heights, then dont visit this one. When stones get blown at 50 KMPH in and around, this place is the perfect testament to human adventure.

Like this all Paradises, this one can not be reached easily, You have to undergo a grueling journey not unlike Dante did to reach Gurudongmar Lake, A 9 hour long tiresome journey on an extremely bad road from Lachen, finally deposits you to the northern tip of Sikkim. The view is breath-taking but the oxygen levels dont help the cause.... More
