Situated in a peaceful environment. You can sit there for hours and relax. A nice place to visit with family and kids and elder people. There are a lot of fishes int he lake . You can carry food and feed them as well.

Khecheopalri Lake is situated amidst Khechoedpaldri hill, which is also considered a sacred hill, this lake is also a Buddhist religious pilgrimage. The 20 minutes walk up to the late is between the forest, which is calm and soothing. I went early in the morning, and almost had the place to myself. There are lot of fishes in the lake and people offer prayers near the bank.

We came on the suggestion of a friend to see Lake Khecheopalri and we are so grateful. It is a sacred lake for both Buddhists and Hindus, who come to make wishes and pray. Locals say no leaf falls onto the lake, (apparently the birds pick up the leaves), although it has many floating floral offerings. It is adorned by prayer flags and people chanting, and is incredibly serene.
Beyond the lake are hillsides, fields and temples to explore. It is incredibly peaceful and beautiful.
We visited back in 2009 but I'm sure it is still as gorgeous today.

Khecheoplari Lake or often believed to be the sacred and wish-fulfilling lake is one of the most serene and beautiful lake around in Sikkim. Easily accessible by a car, the lake is about 28 kms from Pelling-the popular tourist destination. The lake amidst the forest area, is kept clean by not allowing a single leaf or leaves to float on the surface of the water...it is said that the birds residing in the surrounding forest picks up all the leaves which floats on the surface of the water.
Our main objective was to hike around the lake region and thus decided to spend a night at one of the home-stay "LAKE VIEW NEST ECO RESORT" which is about 25 minutes hike from the lake side / end of the road. The top of the ridge where this Eco resort is located in itself is beautiful and peaceful with greenness all around.
Hike towards RING-DARA from here is about 30-40 minutes and the place is serene...the view of the lake from Ring-Dara is amazing as we could see a whole feature of the lake which is shaped like a left foot print (belief is that the lake is a left foot print mark of great Guru Padmashambhava-the 8th century Buddhist master )
The hike through the rich jungle is worth as it offers different species of trees and bushes to see (have to be good for the researcher). The long day followed by a quite evening at the Eco-Resort is something additional of a joy of the trip.
Khecheopalri Lake which is also a pilgrimage site is also known for its sanctity well preserved and offering a prayer to this wish-fulling lake never goes unpaid (My believe)

The place is really scenic and peaceful. Try to come in the afternoon when you can sit beside the lake for long time and enjoy the nature.

The lake water is absolutely clean, the ripples in the water, the colourful prayer flags all add to the beauty of the place.

Kheachupalri, considered as sacred by locals and have to walk bare foot for 5-10 mtrs. Here you can feed the lake fish.

What a beautiful lake! Perfect with the backdrop of thick lush green forests. This place will give you the Switzerland feels. Perfect for taking photos. I loved this place the best in my entire Sikkim tour.
