Darjeeling: The pall of gloom of the COVID-19 has officially been lifted from the hills of Darjeeling where tourists have finally started trickling in to enjoy the exotic sights after the COVID-19 induced lockdown. The Mirik lake -- one of the most wonderfully exotic locations in the Darjeeling hills -- is now calling out to tourists to enjoy its beauty once again.

With tourists gradually starting to visit Darjeeling, the Gorkhaland Territorial Administration (GTA) Tourism department has resumed tourist activities like boating at Mirik Lake. Now, tourists can once again visit the location and enjoy the beauty of the lake situated in the beautiful hills of the Darjeeling region.

The Mirik Lake, or Sumendu Lake, is a lake in Mirik, Darjeeling district, West Bengal, India. It is 1.25 kilometres long. The lake has 80 feet long arch footbridge across the lake called the Indreni Pull. Needless to say, tourists searching for some beautiful location to while away their time after the worries of the COVID-19 induced lockdown can find some much needed solace in this lake.
