Khecheopalri Lake

Khecheopalri Lake in Sikkim is also known as the wishing lake. This unusually tranquil Khecheopalri Lake is surrounded by blooming forest and is considered as one of the sacred lakes of Sikkim both by the Buddhist and the Hindus. Hence, no water sport or other activities besides prayers are allowed around the lake. It is believed that birds do not permit even a single leaf to float on the Khecheopalri Lake . The surrounding of the lake is an ideal place to find the Lepcha houses and their communities.
