The Tsomgo lake is a glacial lake located in Sikkim. The lake is venerated amongst the Sikkimese as being a sacred lake, with a rich past interwoven with history and legends. The name 'Tsomgo' derives from the Bhutia language and means the 'source of water'.

Situated about 40 km from Gangtok, at an altitude of 12310 feet, the surface of the lake is known to change colour, almost as if it were reflecting the mood of the sky and the mountain, turning from bright blue on clear days to dark gray in ominous weather. This picture was taken in low light conditions as a thick fog descended on the lake and the rain began to come down in a drizzle. Yet, despite the rough weather all around, the lake appeared calm and placid. On the banks of the lake in the month of May, lichen and small shrubs can now be seen springing forth as the snow recedes. They also lend an interesting interplay of green and red hues to the otherwise muted monochrome of the snow, the fog and the mountains.

The tranquility of the lake, in foreboding conditions, inspires us all to maintain equanimity in the face of adversity; while the vegetation, seen putting forth buds, reminds us of the rewards of tenacity and perseverance.
