Khecheopalri – The Mystic lake of Sikkim

A sacred  lake for Buddhists , Khecheopalri is a beauty surrounded by forests and hills. According to locals , this is a wish-fulfilling lake and has curative properties too. A young lady offering prayers by the lake informed us that the lake is believed to be blessed by Goddess Tara and resembles a giant foot print ( believed to belong to the Goddess) if one manages to look at it from atop one of the surrounding hills.  Of all the places I visited in Pelling , this one was the most peaceful.

    1. Agree totally ! I wish I could go there again . It has been a year since the trip but I can’t help reliving those two weeks every now and then . The weather , the verdant surroundings and the flowers !!! I hope I can go there again someday 🙂
