Tawang at Raunchily Pradesh is one of those places which is not yet spoiled by tourists. It is one of the remaining paradises on earth. Clean, pure, and natural. If you visit Tawang remember to keep it clean.

"Wonderful and most beautiful Lake"

  • 7.0/7
  • Posted Mar 12, 2016
Commonly known as PTSo lake it was one of the most beautiful I will cherish throughout my life. Covered with flowers, the view of the area around lake was also unforgettable. The fog around made the view more enduring.

"Only the nature speaks here"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Mar 29, 2015
This lake is located at a height of 12, 000 feet in the eastern Himalayas in Tawang district. Also known as PTSO Lake by the tourist.

It is approximately 17km from Tawang, one needs to hire a vehicle(preferably sumo and similar ones) to have a glimpse of this lake. This lake is surrounded by the Himalayas and one gets to see the clear blue sky with rhododendrons in full bloom in the peak seasons and on the other hand it remains frozen for 5-6 months a year during winters. The car driver mentioned that the lake remains frozen in winters and tourists walk on the surface of lake freely, unfortunately I missed it. So if you all want to enjoy such things you must plan accordingly.

One going there must carry woollen clothes and light foods/snacks(chips, bread etc) and drink much water which is advised when one is on high altitudes. The calm water, silently moving clouds, earth with its greenery, chirping of high altitude birds and warmth is all that one gets while visiting this lake. I even encountered four horses grazing there and the surrounding felt like a painting for me, simply its splendid. In fact this is one of the best lakes I have seen.
