The lake is situated in the middle of the forest and is considered as a holy lake, both by the Buddhists and the Hindus in Sikkim. The lake is only meant for prayers, thus no water sport and other activities are allowed in this lake.

    Rabdentse Fort Ruins - At a distance of 1 km from Pemayangtse Monastery, are the ruins of Rabdentse Fort, which was the second capital of Sikkim (1670 to 1814.). The fort was destroyed by the invading Nepalese army and now, only ruins of the fort are seen here. The fort was established by Chadok Namgyal, son of Phuntsog Namgyal, in the year 1670. At present the ruins of Rabdentse are part of the Buddhist religious pilgrimage circuit. The route to this fort, around 1 km long, starts at Pelling–Geyshing Road and goes through a forest up to the ruins of the fort. The Pemayangtse Monastery is visible from this place. The ruins of this fort comprise huge wall stubs and two wings, namely the northern wing and the southern wing. The northern part was used by the royal family and it has an open quadrangle.
