Menmecho Lake is one of the most beautiful lakes of East Sikkim at an altitude of 12,500 feet. Surrounded by untouched pine forests and deep slopes, Menmecho Lake is said to change colours every minute.
The lake is fed by the waters of the surrounding mountains of Jelep La Pass and stays frozen from January to August. It is the source of the river Rangpo chu, a tributary of the Teesta River. The waters of the lake are sourced by melting snow in summer and the monsoon in the wet season.
