The name of the lake has been derived from Bhutia language and stands for the source of water. The local people informed us that the melting of snow from the mountains serves as the source of water for the lake. They also told us that the lake exhibits completely different looks during different seasons. We were lucky that we were travelling during the summers the lake along with the nearby areas remain covered with snow during the winters. We could also spot a group of beautiful and rarely seen colourful flowers surrounding the lake.
We also carried out rides on beautifully crafted mules and yaks and were extremely overjoyed. There were a number of eating stalls and we tried out some exclusive beverages and snacks found in this part of the world. We could spot some magnificent steep mountains on different sides of the lake. We also came to know that we were very close to the border between India and China.
