High Altitude Lakes in the Lap of the Himalayas are mystically fascinating .
Formed almost entirely by melting snow, glaciers and brooks and streams The Tsomgo Lake in Sikkim is located at a height of 3870 metres ( 12700 feet) in Sikkim, India within touching distance of the Tibetan Plateau.
Most of The Himalayan Peaks overlooking the Changu ( or Tsomgo) Lake rise above the Tree Line and thus barren and bereft of Trees. Have a look.
The banks of the Enchanting Tsomgo Lake supports Unique Alpine Flora. The weather here changes rapidly and the Mists and Low Clouds play Hide and Seek.
The Sun appeared magically enabling me get the following picture. Observe the Snow turning into the Waters of this Lake , which is highly revered by Buddhists and Hindus.
Within seconds as though by the will of a Magic Wand the Lake and Himalayas disappear as Dense Clouds cover Changu Lake.
The Spellbinding Lake changes colour with changing Seasons and even Freezes entirely during the Winters when temperatures fall rapidly.
The Sun appears again revealing a Himalayan Path girding the Lake.
At the deepest it is about 15 metres or 50 feet.
Watch out for the next blog to be Enchanted by Yaks and Yetis at Tsomgo Lake.
