About Gurudongmar Lake

One of the most beautiful, pristine lakes in Sikkim, Gurudongmar lake sits in close proximity to the Tibetan and Chinese border in the north. Nested amidst the mountains at 5,183 meters, the freezing alpine lake is amongst the major sources of the river Teesta. The lake takes its name after the eminent guru Padmasambhava, who is believed to have traversed this region during his visit to Tibet.

There’s even a temple of him near the lake. Flanked on one side by the incredible Kanchendzonga range, the lake freezes in the winter months, save a special spot that is said to have been blessed. The waters of the lake are believed to have been blessed by the gods and are revered all over by the Hindus.
