On the way back from Nathu La it’s a lake surrounded by mountains, but in peak season was a bit crowded. Lot of yaks available for yak ride. Boating is also available. Nice place to stop for a while.

I stayed in Ricassa which is 3km away from main Mg road. Rooms are ok. The staff is very friendly and cooperative in terms of my experience . Check prices at Ttivago and other sites. Well you can negotiate also.
