Photographer's Note

Aritar lake from Aritar top
A large half KM long lake looks like a soup bowl from the nearby 1000 feet high top. China border at Nathu-La is about 65 KM. There is a temple of Lord Shiva and few tourist huts under construction at the top.

Itís an upcoming tourist attraction in the East Sikkim and only 8 KM away from Rhenok which is a famous old locality on the ancient Silk route. A birdís eye view provides an over all assessment of the whole ancient Silk route passing through this area. Positions of Nathu-La, Jelep-La and Kupup can be perfectly appreciated from here.

Approach can be from Pedong of West Bengal or Rongli of Sikkim and both are equally comfortable.
