AritarAn aerial view, which your might find a nearby look alike like Khurpatal from top near Nainital, the Aritar lake is set amidst lush green forest with vivid flora and fauna. A lake quite different from all others and unique due to its eco surroundings makes Aritar an extra ordinarily beautiful natural beauty in the eastern part of Sikkim.

Isolated from the rest of the state, bounded by Mt. Kanchendzonga, apart from the rich forest reserve, the region is also characterized by mountains and rivers. The “boot- shaped” Aritar or Lampokhri Lake (Ghati-Tso) is a nearby attraction, which is also the oldest lake in Sikkim, as are traditional villages and monasteries such as Lingsay. Aritar lies under Rongli sub division. A mere 3 and half hours drive from Gangtok, 1 and half hours from Lava and 2 hours drive from Rongpo will take you to this unique tourist destination with mighty Kanchendhonga staring at you throughout. The lake was renovated by the government to facilitate the first paddle boating in Sikkim. From Mankhim hilltop, the Lake looks just spectacular, an early morning view of the Aritar Lake will be a memory to cherish for years. You can take a trek of around 6-7 hours to reach Rachela, a route famous for its Rhododendron density, from Aritar or can opt for a small hike to Phusrey Lake.

The Aritar Gumpa is one of the oldest monasteries in Sikkim belonging to the Karma Kagyu lineage order of Tibetan Buddhism. The region offers the most spectacular views of the Himalaya including Mount Kanchendzonga, Mount Makalu, Mount Pandim, Mount Sinoulchu, etc. Rhenock is a small picturesque settlement on the Valley just 6 kilometers from the lake. Aritar lies in the famous old Silk Route and therefore many known historical places can be covered during your tour to Aritar like Aritar, Zuluk, Jelep La Pass, Baba Dham, Nathang Valley, Baba Mandir, Kupup Lake, etc.
