Gurudongmar Lake, is located at a whopping height of 17,100 feet above sea level! Yes, you heard it right! We are talking about one of the fifteen highest lakes in the world, so high that you might need a few extra breaths to take in the beauty of this place. But don’t worry, Gurudongmar Lake has got you covered, with its reputed healing powers that can rejuvenate you in no time.

Apart from the stunning panoramic view of Mount Siniolchu and Kanchenjunga that the lake offers, Gurudongmar Lake is also considered a holy place encircled by snow-capped mountains and crystal clear icy water. It’s like a religious dip in a glass of chilled water, except that it is freezing and might leave you shivering! But hey, that’s a small price to pay for such a heavenly experience.

Don’t forget to stop by the ‘Sarva Dharma Sthal’, a place of worship for all religions, located nearby. Trust us; you don’t want to miss this beautiful temple with such a peaceful vibe.

Now, coming to the fun part, we know you are excited to trek around the lake, and we don’t blame you! Gurudongmar Lake is the base station for several treks, and the Sarva Dharma Sthal is the temple for all religions! How cool is that? But before you go all out on your adventure, keep in mind that you might need some extra oxygen to cope up with the low oxygen levels at such a high altitude. So, make sure to carry some medicine and catch your breath while enjoying the scenic beauty around you.

Don’t worry; the journey is worth it! You can also explore other places around Gurudongmar Lake, like the Lachen village and Thangu village, which are just a few hours’ drive away. If you plan your visit during summer, you might get lucky to witness the annual Yak Race called the Thangu Festival at Lachen, which is a must-visit if you’re looking for some fun and adventure!

Pro Tip: Carry some warm clothes with you, as the weather is quite cold out there, and don’t forget to stop at Lachen for an early morning drive to Gurudongmar. Also, sunglasses with Polaroid film coating and UV lenses are a must to protect you from heavy sun rays and white blindness!

So, what are you waiting for? Grab your permit, pack your bags, and get ready for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at Gurudongmar Lake, where spirituality meets adventure!
