This is a sacred lake and there are lots of prayer flags around it as well as the usual prayer wheels and statues.
There is a path up to a view point which goes past a cave. It's worth going up if you can manage it. There's a snack shop and toilets there.
An easier way down past some local houses is signposted from the top.

Interesting temple. Amazing to see so many tibetan banners around the lake fluttering in the wind.

A calm sacred place. This Lake is considered holy and no one is allowed to go near it nowadays. There is a barrier, beyond which one may stay and enjoy the beauty of this place. Khecheopalri Lake is also known as the Wishing Lake, as per local lore. There is a statue of some local Gods beside the lake, where people pray. There is also a cave. One needs to climb up a few stairs to the cave, from where one can see a better view of the entire area. Small stones are kept in a certain stacked fashion, denoting wishes done by people who visited this place. One can offer their prayers with some incense sticks and wish using these small stones.

A small walk bring us to the lake. It is a very sacred place for buddhist and also a wish fulfilling lake. There is a trek that lead to a cave and view point. We did not attempt it.

The tourism department of Sikkim should show a little more interest in improving the surrounding of the area.

Sikkim govt changed it a lot.

As shown in picture entrance to it changed and you cant go near to original lake and cant feed food to fish

Instead of it small artificial similar lake created not worth visiting.

I think local and govt took this step of changes made is not in interest of tourists.

To view original lake from upward need to go upstairs with about 180 steps and again for coming down same steps to be followed

we went early morning. The walk to reach the lake is so breathtaking with trees on both sides. It has slight inclines but can be walked by most people of all ages. Ideally I would have liked a guide/booklet which talks more about the history of the lake, nevertheless a must visit.

This lake has a lot of religious significance for the local Buddhists. Do not come here expecting a picnic atmosphere.

Tips:
- Walk to the top of the hill if you can for a very beaustiful view of the lake and the surroundings from the viewing tower on the top. On the way you also cross a holy cave
- Do not miss the Tashi Choling Monastery near the car park as you exit the lake. I hardly found anyone going to this monastery after visiting the lake. It is a big monastery with a large number of lamas living here.

None of the tourist blurb from the tourism media tells you about the negatives. You walk through this pristine forest.. and then you are rained on by leeches.. hundreds of not 1000s of them. For the faint hearted it will leave you screaming for mercy as you undress and add tobacco juice. BEWARE! and its locally called " THE LAP OF BUDDHA " nobody tells you that either. Is it all its cracked up to-be ? not really but its a daytrip.

Peaceful atmosphere surrounds the lake on a usual day. However, when we visited, there was a festival going on and there was hue rush at that place.
