Tsomgo Lake (12400ft) – Also known as Changu Lake is an oval shaped glacial lake which is only 40 km from Gangtok City, and almost about 1Km in length with 15 meters depth. The name Tsomgo is made of two words in Bhutia Language ‘Tso’ means ‘lake’ and ‘Mgo’ means ‘head’ in a short ‘source of the lake’. This high-altitude lake is surrounded by snow-capped steep mountains and remains frozen during wintertime. As summer beings to step-in, the glacier melts and the lake gets its origin. The locals consider the lake to be sacred, and it reflects different colors with the change in seasons.

Soldiers found his remains after 3 days and cremated with full military honour along with a shrine on his Samadhi built as per Baba’s wish, which he expressed through his friend post-death. The original bunker of Baba Harbhajan Singh is located further up near the Gnathang valley which is the Old Baba Mandir but because of its difficult terrain tourist can’t reach there so they build a New Mandir for easy access. This shrine is believed to have wish-fulfilling powers along with that Baba is still guarding the international border between India and China. On Sundays, a ‘Langar’ runs at the temple, which provides free meals to the visitors.
Nathula Pass – A major mountain pass in the Himalayas in East Sikkim district, which is a corridor of passage between India and Tibet before it was closed in 1962 but reopened in 2006.
