    We had an amazing chilled weekend at Gangtok. Tsomgo Lake is really a great place. Roads are bit rough though but it is worth going .The huge lake surrounded by huge mountains on all Sides is really marvelous and the Yak ride is worth mentioning. The chilling Cold Winds; the Momos is really a delight to have. The Tashi view point has a spectacular view. Visit as early as possible during the day. You might find the place foggy, but don’t be mistaken, its actual clouds. Mt Katao was just brilliant! Full of clean Ice and fresh everywhere with spine chilling weather, minus degree temperatures at a height of 12666 Ft. And there’s a great waterfall on the way. Its feels great to be here.Cheers!
