Nestled in the serene hills of Darjeeling, Mirik Lake is one such tourist attraction that will take your breath away. Owing to its picturesque natural surroundings and invigorating climate, the lake is one of the popular tourist attractions in the region.
Also known as Sumendu Lake, the area around its pristine waters are covered with pine trees and lush green gardens. Adjoining the two is the aching footbridge over the lake, which is also known as Rainbow bridge.
One of the things to do while visiting the beautiful Mirik Lake is boating. The fascinating lake offers a chance to row all along the 1.25 km long stretch. Besides, tourists can also try fishing in the quiet and tranquil atmosphere all around. As the lake is centered between the raw natural terrains, horse riding and long walks are also the highlighted activities.
Blessed with a view of the mesmerizing Kanchenjunga peak in the front, the popular Mirik Lake is just a couple of hours away while traveling from Siliguri to Darjeeling.
