“Wonderful.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

Frightening roads up to it, but it was worth it. Excellent, chinese-style noodles place on the lake. Snow was bedazzling, excellent tour guide, amazing photography prospects. A definite destination for all tourists travelling to Sikkim.

“Mindblowing, memorable, dazzling experience!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

I loved the natural beauty of the lake, the snow, the willing yak ride people and the tour guide to the lake who was good. The only problems are that foreign tourists cannot visit the nathula pass and the road up causes you to think the end is near, slipping and sliding over wet rock about to plummet 12000 feet to your demise. The lake, however, was excellent, a highlight of Sikkim and India itself.

“Beware of the yak ride!!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

Changu lake was good. we were blessed with good weather and also lots of fresh snow. But the yak ride was a big letdown. The yaks were good, but yakwallas charge a bomb and tell you the amount only when they take you halfway. the yak ride is just not worth the amount. Please finalise the cost with them BEFORE you ride. :-).

“A good high altitude experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

Weather disappointing but apart from that a great experience, especially the road access which quite frightening in places. Lots of road works taking place to improve access. Loads of Yaks to ride on.
