Think Sikkim and resplendent nature is the first thought. Sikkim shares many untold stories with every traveller, that of the mountains and of the valleys, of rivers and of lakes. One such lake is the Khecheopalri Lake. If you are holidaying at the charming Club Mahindra resort at Baiguney, one of the things to do in Baiguney is to experience Bird watching in the Forests near Khecheopalri Lake. From the resort at Baiguney, it will take you approximately 2.5 hours to get to the Khecheopalri Lake.
Located at an altitude of 5600 ft the lake is believed to be more than 3500 years old. Prayer wheels and Tibetan prayer flags circle the lake giving it a magical appearance. The lake is sacred to both Hindus and Buddhists and so the folklore about the lake’s origin has elements of both religions.
Pristine waters nestled amidst splendid greens is a mesmerising sight. Interestingly, no leaves are ever found on the surface of the lake as the avifauna swoop down and keep the lake clear of leaves. This lake is nothing short of a wonderland for birdwatchers. And if you are a traveller who wishes to be close to nature, you must simply experience the Bird watching in the Forests near Khecheopalri Lake. The lake attracts black winged cormorants, the common teal, grebe, and white breasted water hen, among others. If you are touring during the migratory season, then you might be lucky and spot the Himalayan Peregrine, bar-headed goose, and the golden Oriole.
