Lampokhari Lake

Lampokri Lake, Aritar

This 1120 feet long and 240 feet wide boot-shaped lake is one of the oldest natural lakes in Sikkim. A pathway has been recently constructed all around the lake for the tourists. You can also do boating in the Lampokhari lake. Located at an altitude of 4600 feet, Lampokhri lake also known as Aritar Lake is surrounded by verdant green pine forests.

A narrow jungle path connects the lake from the nearby mountain top called Mankhim. Although Mt. Kanchenjungha is not visible from Lampokhri or its adjacent village – Aritar, still Lampokhri holds its charm as an emerald green lake amidst an untouched pine forest. Children can feed the fish and swans of Lampokhri too. The jungle path that connects Mankhim to Lampokhri Lake is a very popular bird watching trail. This two-kilometer walk with viewpoints is an ideal place to rejuvenate with nature. There is a small temple dedicated to Guru Padmasambhava on the banks of Lampokhri Lake. Boating is also allowed in this lake.
