Khecheopalri lake is a lake situated in the West Sikkim district, near Khecheopalri village. This lake is sacred for both Hindus and Buddhists, and is known to be a wish fulfilling lake. Localites call this lake as Sho Dzo Sho, which means “Oh Lady, Sit Here”. From an elevation, the lake appears to be in the shape of a foot and according to Hindu beliefs, Lord Shiva meditated here. Myth is that when a leaf falls on the placid clear water surface, it is picked by a bird and thus the water surface is always free of leaves.
Rabdentse was once the second capital of the former Kingdom of Sikkim from 1670 to 1814, but was destroyed by the invading Gurkha army and now just the ruins of the former city remain. From the vantage points of these ruins, you can catch a glimpse of the mighty Khangchendzonga mountains. The ruins of the palace are made up of two wings, northern and southern. Northern wing was used by the royal families as their residence.
