Early in the morning start for Gurudongmar Lake Tour, one of the most sacred lakes believed by the Buddhists and Hindus alike. The beautiful and awe-inspiring lake remains milky in color throughout the year. According to a legend, since the lake used to remain frozen most of the year, it was not possible to use its water for drinking purposes. When the Guru Padmasambhava passed by, while returning from Tibet, the local residents are reported to have approached him for providing a source of water.
The Guru obliged. A portion of the lake touched by him does not freeze in extreme winter. Since the water of the lake is considered sacred, visitors carry the ‘blessed’ water in bottles.
