Tsomgo Lake also known as Changu Lake is a glacial lake in the East Sikkim district, some 40 kilometers (25 mi) from the capital Gangtok. The lake is surrounded by steep mountains which are covered with snow during winter. During summer the snow cover melts and forms the source for the lake. From here we drive further to Baba Mandir. Baba Mandir is a shrine built in honor of Major “Baba” Harbhajan Singh who died in 1968. Many believe that  his spirit protects every soldier in the inhospitable high-altitude terrain of the Eastern Himalayas. After the tour we return to our homestay in Gangtok. Overnight in Gangtok.
