Situated at an altitude of 5,486 m in North Sikkim
, the high mountain
pass of the Dongkha La Pass connects Sikkim in India with Tibet in China. It is a part of the Himalayan Mountain Range
Range and offers a view of the Tibetan Plateau
. Located nearby is the Tso Lhamo Lake which is considered to be one of the origins of Teesta River
