Saturday Snapshot - Tsongmo/Changu Lake - Sikkim

Saturday Snapshot is the brain child by Alyce of At Home With Books. It is currently being hosted by Melinda of West Metro Mummy Reads. It’s easy to participate – just post a picture that was taken by you, a friend, or a family member and add your link on Melinda's site.

This week I am sharing some pics of Tsongmo Lake in Sikkim, India.


Tsongmo/Changu Lake is a glacial lake situated at a height of 12400 feet.  It is about 40 kms away from Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim. We were lucky to find snow there, the views are absolutely breathtaking.

Thank you for stopping by! Cheers!

  3. Stunning views! I had no idea that there was landscape like this in India. I always forget how large of a country it is and what diversity of geography is there.

  5. When I think of India I think of heat not snow. But at that elevation snow must be fairly common. Lovely.

    1. I agree Anne, anyone would think of the heat. But, we do have some beautiful places which are at a good height and temperatures in these places are fairly mild throughout the year. Sikkim is one such place.
