About Lampokhari

In Sikkim, there is a boot-shaped lake which is 1120 feet long and 240 feet wide and called Lampokhari Lake. It is one of the oldest lakes in Sikkim. This lake is also known by the name Aritar Lake and surrounded by green pine forests. This narrow jungle path connects the lake from the nearby mountain top called Mankhim. A pathway has been recently constructed all around the lake for tourists who visit this lake from all over the world.

If you wish to trek for the first time, then this 1.5 km trek through forests from Mankhim to Lampokhari Lake is perfect for you. This is an absolutely beautiful view for bird watchers and children. Lampokhari Lake trek is easy and non-guided with average altitude of 4500 feet.

The entire trail of Lampokhari Lake is guarded by railings and is stone paved so it is completely safe for family members and children. The winding trail is dotted by temporary trekker’s shades and viewpoints to give an exciting experience to a trek. Since there is no accommodation within the trek route Guests need to stay at Mankhim and start the downhill trek. Another great option for tourists is to enjoy boating in Lampokhari Lake. Also, there is a small temple dedicated to Guru Padmasambhava on the banks of the Lake.
