Mirik is a small town and a municipality of Darjeeling district in the state of West Bengal, India. The most prominent place in Mirik, The Sumendu Lake is beautiful, calm and yet invigorating. The lake also has an 80 foot bridge running over it for people who don't wish to walk around it.
Boating in the lake and a pony ride on the lakeside are exhilarating experiences. Also, the strategic advantage of the lake is that it is nearly walking distance to every place in the town. A floating fountain in the middle of the lake is a joy forever and very often one may find the glory of Kanchenjungha reflected in the lake waters. A rich forest with thousands of Cryptomaria-Japanica trees clothe the slopes on the west. A 3.5 km. zig-zag foot walk takes you along the lake – sleek foot bridge connects the garden on the east with the woods on the west.
