    Kathok Lake is situated on the way to Norbugang Throne in Yuksam, west Sikkim there is a beautiful sacred Lake known as ‘Kathok Tsho’ or Kathok Lake. This Lake is regarded as the ‘Lahtsho’ or soul lake of Lama Kathok Kuntu Zangpo, one of the pioneer lamas who introduced Buddhism to this land in 1642 A.D. He sanctified this lake for the purpose of his oracular practices. Lamas perform Tru-sol or purification ceremony every year to retain its sanctity. A newly restored monastery named as ‘Kathok Wosel Ling’ is located above this lake.
