While coming down from Nathula Pass, we stopover at the Tsomgo Lake. There is nothing to see except to take photographs with Yak's. Might be it would be of great views in winter.

If you have never seen a mountain lake before, this is a must see. On the way to Nathula Pass, it is a lovely place to spend some time and watch the yaks. You can even ride one, though they are pricey.

Visited Changu lake in the mid of June. Couldn't find snow . It was just like a normal lake at Kerala but a bigger version. Took pictures with the Yak. :D. Nice , pleasant lake at 10,000ft above sea level.

Beautiful lake midst high mountains. Cristal clear water with amazing scenery. One can ride on yak also in peaceful atmosphere by lake side. A rope way was under construction near the lake and may be operational in near future. Good visit.

Even normal person get breathing trouble sometime in Nathula Pass and that matter in Tsangmo lake altitude.So better to consult doctor.
Me(Indian) and my girlfriend(Filipino) are planning to visit Sikkim during the end of September. I am aware that she would require ILP(Inner Line Permit) which is easily available. But I have read that Nathula is off limits for foreigners which has been confirmed by many. I was wondering if she can visit Tsongmo Lake with me? Else we might plan for some other destination. Can anyone confirm if she can get a permit to visit Tsongmo Lake if I accompany her?
