Photographer's Note

This is the Tsomgo Lake or Chhangu Lake as called by bengalis at an altitude of about 12000 feet in east sikkim.We went there on a day trip during our stay at Rongpo FRH at WB-Sikkim border.
Tsongo Lake is 38 kilometers from Gangtok the capital of Sikkim and takes about 2˝ hours to reach by hired car. The word Tsongo in Bhutia language means source of the lake. The lake is about one kilometer long, 50ft deep and oval in shape.
The lake remains frozen throughout the winter up to April end. Snowfall is also common in this area even during the summer months.
