India Lake


India Lake in the Silk Route is located very near to Laxman Chowk at around 12500 feet, the water of this lake is so dark that it has earned its name Kalpokhari. Kal means Kaala or Black and Pokhari refers to pond or lake in Sikkimese. Kalpokhari is tucked within a valley which is a yak grazing land. From an angle. this lake looks somewhat like India’s Political Map, so some prefer to call it India Lake too.

It is a sacred lake, which is said to contain sacred fish within its deep waters. The surrounding valley of this lake makes a sheer drop of thousands of feet from where the clouds peep and then slowly cloak this lake.
