Gurudongmar Lake at a height of 17100 ft, is among the top 15 highest lakes in the world and is the second highest lake in Sikkim, the first being Cholamu lake at a height of 18000 ft. The panoramic and scenic beauty of the place is a sight to behold.
Named after Guru Dongmar, the lake has a religious appeal. The view of Mount Siniolchu and Khanchendzonga is breathtaking from that point. Surrounded by snow clad mountains and crystal clear icy water, it is considered to be a very sacred lake both by the Hindus as well as the Buddhists. Legend has it that, Guru Padmasambhava (also known as Guru Dongmar), touched and sanctified the lake, and thus, even in extreme winter, a portion of the lake does not freeze.
