  • Submitted a challenge entry Frozen Gurudongmar Lake
    Gurudongmar Lake is one of the highest lakes in the world, located at an altitude of 17,100 ft (5,210 m). It lies in the district of North Sikkim in the state of Sikkim in India, only some 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) south of Chinese border.

There is an interesting belief of this lake:
Guru Nanak Dev, founder of Sikhism religion, visited many of the places where Padmasambhava prayed at, including this lake in North Sikkim. At the local people's request for water, Guru Nanak, with his 'dang' (a long stick) broke upper layer of ice & said, "Water of this lake will never freeze". People named this lake 'guru dang mar' meaning created with the dang of Guru Nanak. Even at the height of winter, one portion of the lake never freezes.
