#Gurudongmar lake is named after #Padmasambhava or Guru #Rinpoche, #homytravel
the founder of #Tibetan #Buddhism. Legend is that  #GuruPadmasambhava on his visit to this lake on his way from #Tibet felt a divine reverence towards the place. 
The lake usually remained #frozen for the  most of the year with no probability of providing drinking water to the local people, 
they prayed to the Guru to help them. 
The revered Guru then put his hand on a part of the lake which has since then 
refrained from #freezing 
The Gurudongmar Lake has been revered and respected since then #GurudongmarLake #sikkim  #ilovesikkim #gangtok #northsikkim #lachen #lachung #mountain #snow #lake  #yoga  #frozenlake #goldenindiajourneys #love #blue

Another lifer from my Sikkim trip: Rufous-necked Snowfinch. It was hopping around on a sea of lichen-encrusted rocks. A rare sighting in India, it's considered a Gurudongmar "special" ~

Thanks to @sandeepram55 for spotting this beauty. 
We were all returning from #gurudongmar when he spotted this around few hundred meters away. This #greatrosefinch was standstill gave us ample time.  I doubt if he even moved after we left 😂
