The town of Gurudongmar is located in the Indian state of Sikkim. Gurudongmar is famous among tourists for its lake, which is located at an altitude of 17100 feet (roughly 5210 meters). This region lies in the northern part of Sikkim, and is located at a distance of around five kilometers from the Chinese border. Gurudongmar is located in a place called Mangan in Northern Sikkim, and this region is open exclusively to travelers and tourists who have permits. The region lies near the border; hence these precautions are always taken.

The terrain that leads to the lake in Gurudongmar is quite inhospitable and very hard to cover and adventure enthusiasts will find this experience rewarding and challenging. One highlight of this very beautiful and ethereal lake is the fact that a portion of the lake never freezes even during the cold winter months. The lake is also surrounded by peaks on all sides, and the scenery here is very serene and captivating, making it an ideal picnic spot. You can visit Gurudongmar Lake and its surrounding regions, which have minor temples dedicated to popular local characters like Padmasambhava, who was a Buddhist monk. You can also take a trek up the terrain to this lake.
