Cho-Lhamu declared highest lake in India

The Wetland Atlas, prepared by the Ministry of Environment and Forest, has stated that Cho-Lhamu is the highest lake in the country and the sixth highest lake in the world, state Tourism Minister Bhim Dhungel said here today.

The Teesta river, stated to be the lifeline of Sikkim, has its origin in Cho-Lhamu lake, located near the Donkiala pass and only about five km from the Indo-China border.
Dhungel said the recognition for Cho-Lhamu lake would boost the tourism industry of the state.
