Khecheopalri Lake - Review
About 2 hours from Gangtok you will find this lovely, secluded spot called the Khecheopalri Lake. It is a sacred place and both Hindus and Buddhists have deemed it so. It is believed that the place can grant your wishes.
Well, even if doesn’t its setting is stunning and it is a place well worth visiting in this region. The area around it has been turned into a Natural Reserve due to the stunning variety of animals, birds and plants found here. In summer, flowers and tall grass surround the area leading up to it making it quite picturesque.
A perfect place to enjoy the beauty of nature, this place is a part of the pilgrimage sites in the area. It is now also slowly becoming a very important site for ecotourism as well.
