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.

One of the most peaceful and serene places that I have ever come across in my life. The place also has religious significance both for Buddhists and Hindus alike. There are idols, temples, and structures all around that signify the holiness of this place and it has some sort of influence on people too when they visit. The shape of the lake is in the form of a foot, and it has religious folklores attached to it.

Amazing discovery about the lake, you will find no leaves on the lake as the birds pick these tree sheddings and park them aside keeping the lake clean.

Please buy fish food at the entry gate and don't forget to feed them, it is a joyous experience to watch them gather around and devour those dried wheat balls.

Spend some time and immerse in this marvel of nature.

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.
