Menmecho Lake Reviews
A beautiful lake fed by the snow from the mountains and is the source of the Rangpochu River.We visited this lake on our way to the Jelepla Pass. more »
A beautiful lake enroute Gangtok via Tukla Valley. You'll love the views. Such a peaceful place amidst all the serene nature. PS: this is not Menmecho/Memencho Lake. That lake is further north enroute... more »
Beautiful lake wonderful scenery
This is neither Menmecho Lake nor Elephant Lake. This is called Batang Chu. It’s amazing how anyone can put anything on google map. Menmecho Lake is further westwards down from Baba Mandir. And Elephant Lake is just a name given to Batang Chu by the armed forces to dilute the local culture and heritage!!!!
