Samiti lake

Samiti lake is a glacial lake in the Onglathang valley in the Indian state of Sikkim, located at an elevation of 15,700 feet. It lies on the route to Goechala Pass and has been attracting visitors due to its beautiful, transparent turquoise color. The lake is an ideal spot for camping due to the beautiful views of the surrounding snow-capped mountains it offers. From Thangsing, it is a two-hour climb up the valley to Samiti Lake. The gradual ascent passes through grazing meadows lined with wildflowers which burst into a riot of color in the pre-monsoon season. The lake is the sacred source of the Prek river.
