Tsomgo Lake is located in the north eastern part of Sikkim. It is situated 35 km away from Gangtok on the Gangtok–Nathula highway, which makes a role of the erstwhile trade route from India to China. This lake has been worshipped as a holy lake by Sikkimese. The average depth of this lake is about 50 feet and 1 km long. An inner permit is required to explore this region.

The cool and tranquil water harmonies with the beautiful scenery around it attract so many visitors. During the winter season, the lake would be in frozen condition. A moderate-sized temple of lord Shiva is present on the lakeshore. Many beautiful flowering plants like primula and other plantations like alpine add beauty to the lake.

. The place has a small market from where tourists can purchase yak cheese, trinkets and local curios. A small temple dedicated to Lord Shiva is located on the banks of the lake and is a major crowd puller. Tourists can enjoy day time snowfall here during the month of June and July. There are many spots and shed where tourists can relax and enjoy the scenic beauty. The temperature here is very cold through the year hence carrying woollens is recommended.
