Gurudongmar Lake – One of the Highest in the World

Gurudongmar Lake (17,100 ft / 5,210 m) in North Sikkim (Lachen) is often visited by tourists due to the natural beauty of the lake and its surrounding areas. Located at the Indo-Tibet border in North Sikkim, the lake is created from melted water as it almost never rains in this place. The desert-like features at such an altitude are sure to strike awe in anyone. The lake is also one of the highest ones in the world. The Indian Army established a Gurdwara near the lake and it also looks after its maintenance.

When you canter to reach the lake, expect to be mesmerised by its beauty. The bluish waters, snow-covered mountains and the sky are a combination so pleasant that it is difficult to put into words.

As per legends, Guru Nanak visited the lake and bestowed His blessings on it. As per some Buddhists, their Guru Padmasambhava blessed the lake, which is considered to be sacred. It is even said that during winter, when everything gets snow-clad, including most of the lake, but one portion remains unfrozen because of blessings of the Guru.

Due to the rather inhospitable terrain, access is stringently controlled by the Army.

The lack of oxygen in the air necessitates informing visitors to have medicines with them and to come down quickly if acute or persistent discomfort sets in.

"I have been travelling with Nature Camp for quite sometime now. Recently we visited North Sikkim, and Kalingpong. Given the location, it was expected to have some hurdles and elections added to the same. But Saibal and team did a great job of ensuring our trip is not impacted and handled all last minute challenges with utmost professionalism. Accommodation and conveyance was as per expectation, and in most cases they exceeded the expectation. Keep up the good work!"
