35 km from Gangtok and at an altitude of 12,310 ft is the ethereally beautiful Tsomgo Lake. Colourfully decorated Yaks with woolen knitwear over the horns and forehead and strings of bells around the necks are ready to take you for a ride around the lake or go up the mountain. The Tourism and Civil Aviation Department as well as private travel agencies on prior booking also organizes Yak Rides in Dzongri, in West Sikkim, a popular trekking point.
