“serene place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Enroute to Nathula, this is a good place to halt for a while. Nice and serene place at such a height. The Yak ride would also be nice. Remeber to bargain on the price for ride!

“Tsomgo lake...Very soulful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

We went there in Jan'12 and the lake itself was covered with snow and view was breathtaking. One can have yak ride as well or simply play with snow. Outside the lake entrance at a walking distance below are some shops which serve excellent maggi...you would not have a better tasting maggi anywhere...so do not miss. These shops also offer gum boots on rent @ 80/- which you might want to take in case you do not want snow to enter your own shoes. Overall...must visit place when in gangtok!

“Yaks at Tsomgo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

The Yak-wallahs create a lot of fuss. So ask the driver to stop the car just before the small walk-way that takes you across to the other side of the lake.
