Day 2: Gurudongmar Lake and Overnight at Lachen
 
 After early breakfast (Packed), leave for Thangu & Chopta Valley.

Thangu valley occupies a very broad valley at the junction of Thangu Chu, Chopta Chu, & Lassur Chu. It is situated at an altitude of 14000ft.

Chopta Valley is situated at a height of 14,500 ft. This Valley is also known for its flowers. This is the second valley of flowers in North Sikkim after the more famous one at Yumthang.

Both the valleys erupt in a riot of colours in the month of June & July. Also in the month of Dec & Jan you can play in the snow or even walk across the meandering frozen Chopta Rivers.

From Chopta Valley, if weather permits and permission is availed, drive for another 30kms in 1.5hr to Gurudongmar Lake (17143ft) close to Tibet Border. This lake is the Second highest lake in India after the Tso Lhamu Lake.

Gurudongmar Lake is considered as one of the sacred lakes of Sikkim both by the Buddhist and the Hindus. The lake is named after Guru Padmasambhava, the Indian tantric Buddhist who conducted rituals there. The lake remains milky in colour throughout the year and it is believed that Guru Padmasambhava had touched the lake whilst he visited Tibet from this area. Hence, a portion of the lake never freezes. After spending half an hour to one hour there, drive back to Lachen.

Note: Permission for visiting Gurudongmar Lake is issued from Gangtok. We would process and complete the formalities for visiting Gurudongmar from Gangtok itself. Yet the visit depends upon weather and road conditions.
