Tsomgo Lake

Tsomgo Lake in Gangtok, Sikkim painted using Acrylic Colours

Tsomgo Lake is also known as Changu Lake. It is a glacial lake some 40 kilometres (25 mi) from the capital Gangtok of the Indian state of Sikkim. Located at an elevation of 3,753 m (12,313 ft), the lake remains frozen during the winter season. The lake surface reflects different colours with change of seasons. And it is held in great reverence by the local Sikkimese people. Buddhist monks used to forecast after studying the changing colours of the lake.
This painting is of the summer season when Tsomgo lake is not frozen. Dark grey clouds are hovering overhead. Snow capped Himalayas are reflected wonderfully in the still waters of the lake. The painting has been done by Akanksha with acrylic colours. Snow laden peaks have been done using intricate knife-work. And a combination of black, blue and white colours are used to paint the water.
