“Frozen beauty!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

It was a beautiful sight as the cloud cover lifted and the sunbeams danced over the just frozen lake. We had just finished our hot noodle soup in one of the many shacks around the lake and were so moved we forgot to even take pics! While it is an interesting place, the ride to it is a little bumpy, it is best to avoid riding on the moody yaks, you never know if the one you are riding dislikes you. 'Cause if it does you just might land on your backside in pain, ruining your holiday. Just enjoy the scene and if you are a romantic at heart, you will remember it for a long long time!

“Worth a visit”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

A very beautiful and picturesque place. The road to this place is very steep. Not recommended for very small children and old people. Carry sufficient water and snacks as these items are priced double over there.

“Amazing! Mountain view in Lake”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

Since the lake is in middle of hills, the whole view is very beautiful. One suggestion - Changu Baba Mandir and Harbhajan baba mandir (up at Nathulla Pass) are two different so don't misunderstand this with the other one. We missed Harbhajan baba mandir due to this misunderstanding.
