The Gorudongmar Lake is a popular attraction in Lachung. It is one of the highest lakes in the world at an altitude of 5,210 mt above sea level. It is in North Sikkim around 5 km from Chinese border and can be reached by taking the road from Lachen via Thangu. It is a fresh water lake and a major source of water to the Teesta River. The lake remains completely frozen in the winter months from November to Mid-May. The lake is located in the north-east of Kanchenjunga.

The lake serves as an important landmark in the Sikh history as it is said that the First Guru of Sikhism Guru Nanak Dev ji visited this place during his trip (Udasi) to China and Tibet. It is said that the Guruji broke the upper layer of the ice with his stick (known as dang) on the people’s request for water. Thus the place gets is name ‘Guru Dand Mar’. A gurudwara is a major attraction here.
