A small hill town is located further 12kms from Pashupati Market and at an average altitude of 5,000ft. After reaching Mirik, first visit the Mirik Monastery on top and then the Mirik Lake. These are the top attractions of the place. Sit along the bank of the lake and relax. You can also do boating in the lake (mostly paddle boats). Or walk over the arching footbridge and crossover to the other side (western bank) of the lake, turn left and take the walkway through the pine tree forest and enjoy the nature. Pony rides are also available around the lake and quite popular with children. P.S. :- For local Sight Seeing within Mirik, you will need to hire a local taxi there, since the local taxi syndicate lets only their cabs for local sight seeing within Mirik town.
