Less Renowned Destinations in India that are a must visit –

gurudongmar-lake(1)A lake at 17000 ft- Gurudongmar, Sikkim– Close to the Indo-Tibet border high up in sikkim, surrounded by snow clad mountains, it is regarded India’s second highest lake. Legend reveals that this lake was blessed by Guru Dongmar that is the reason why not even a portion of the lake freezes during peak winter.  You need to drive about 9 hours if you’re travelling from Gangtok, and ideally can take a halt overnight at Lachen Village and enjoy the weather. The place has less oxygen here, and  therefore it is not recommended to spend more than an hour by the lake, but in spite of this, the primeval fresh water and a view of the splendid Kanchenjunga make the visit here well worth your time. If you are looking for memorable experience and you can handle the altitude, the visit to Gurudongmar is definitely for you.
