Educational tours are part and parcel of the life of the students. Students need rest and entertainment after working hard for many days. Excursions can provide them solace and help them to form a route from their tedious study schedules. This time we visited Sikkim and explored many places in and around. The students visited Rangpo, Teesta, Waterfall at Tarkhola and Tibetan monastery. Students were mesmerised by the panoramic views of Kanchenjunga, which is a section of the Himalayas.
Students of BBA department developed love for nature and got real happiness when they got a chance to visit Tsongo Lake and Baba Mandir . Tsongo Lake also known as change Lake is aglacial lake in Sikkim and located at a altitude of 12,310 feet. It is located 40 kms from Gangtok town on the steep route known as Jawaharlal Nehru road.

In this trail, a memorable trip was extended to Baba Mandir near Tsomgu Lake. It is located between Nathula and Jelepla pass at an altitude of 13,123ft and about 52 kms away from Gangtok. Baba Harbhajan Singh temple is popularly known as Baba Mandir. One usually covers this temple along with a visit to Tsomgo Lake. We reached Baba Mandir around 12.30 pm. Though it was a sunny day , cool breeze were felt due to the high altitude. The Students had a long walk ahead of them from the parking place till the site of Baba Mandir. The walk was very tiresome because of the high altitude. But the site was worth the trek. The view was beautiful. After reaching the final destination, the actual joy of satisfaction was revealed.
