Khecheopalri Lake

The Khecheopalri Lake is an integral part of Buddhist religious pilgrimage circuit. It is one of the sacred lakes in Sikkim and is believed to be a wish-fulfilling lake as well. An interesting feature of the lake is that leaves are not allowed to float on the lake, which is ensured by the birds that industriously pick them up as soon as they drop onto the lake surface.
