4N 5D Lachen Lachung Package


Day Wise Detail Itinerary

Day 1

Day 01: Gangtok to Lachen (Start time will depend upon time of availability of permit)

Pick up from Gangtok and drive to Lachen (120km). On the way stop for sightseeing spots like Tashi View Point, Kabi Lungtsok, Naga Waterfall and The Confluence of Lachen Chu & Lachung Chu at Chungthang. Lunch will be taken at Namok (A Wayside Inn). The whole journey takes about 6-7 hours drive.

Lachen is a remote village in North Sikkim and the winter home for Tibetan nomadic tribes against the backdrop of towering snow peaks, alpine flower valleys, and vast plateau. This is the base for exploring the high altitude Gurudongmar Lake (Depending upon prior permission). By evening you reach at Lachen and your trip for the first day ends.

Meal Plan: Breakfast (No), Lunch (Yes), Dinner (Yes)




Day 2

Day 02: Gurudongmar Lake and overnight at Lachen.

After early breakfast (Packed), leave for Thangu & Chopta Valley.  Thangu valley occupies a very broad valley at the junction of Thangu Chu, Chopta Chu, & Lassur Chu. It is situated at an altitude of 14000ft.

Chopta Valley is situated at a height of 14,500 ft. This Valley is also known for its flowers. This is the second valley of flowers in North Sikkim after the more famous one at Yumthang.

Both the valleys erupt in a riot of colours in the month of June & July. Also in the month of Dec & Jan you can play in the snow or even walk across the meandering frozen Chopta Rivers.

From Chopta Valley, if weather permits and permission is availed, drive for another 30kms in 1.5hr to Gurudongmar Lake (17143ft) close to Tibet Border. This lake is the Second highest lake in India after the Tso Lhamu Lake.

Gurudongmar Lake is considered as one of the sacred lakes of Sikkim both by the Buddhist and the Hindus. The lake is named after Guru Padmasambhava, the Indian tantric Buddhist who conducted rituals there. The lake remains milky in colour throughout the year and it is believed that Guru Padmasambhava had touched the lake whilst he visited Tibet from this area. Hence, a portion of the lake never freezes. After spending half an hour to one hour there, drive back to Lachen.

Note: Permission for visiting Gurudongmar Lake is issued from Gangtok. We would process and complete the formalities for visiting Gurudongmar from Gangtok itself. Yet the visit depends upon weather and road conditions.

After lunch, visit the Lachen Monastery and spend the evening at leisure. Overnight stay would be at Lachen.


Meal Plan: Breakfast (Yes, packed), Lunch (Yes), Dinner (Yes)

Lachung is yet another remote high altitude village of Tibetan and Bhutia people in North Sikkim with towering rocky snow peaks, vibrant rhododendron valley, lush green yak pastures, perennial waterfalls, hot springs and the base for exploring alpine valley of Yumthang and Yumesamdong close to the Tibetan plateau.

Evening is free at leisure and overnight stay would be at Lachung.

Meal Plan: Breakfast (Yes), Lunch (Yes), Dinner (Yes)




Day 4

Day 04: Shingba Rhododendron sanctuary and Yumthang Valley excursion.

After breakfast leave for YUMTHANG, (11,800 ft.), the “Valley of flowers”. This Ultimate Paradise is strewn with lush green valleys and high peaked mountains all around you.

In April/May/June the valley is a riots of colours with Rhododendron, Alpine & Primula flowers.
In Nov/Dec/Jan you can enjoy the scenic and the panoramic views of the valleys and surrounding mountain ranges with snow-capped peaks. Yumthang is also renowned for its much hyped Hot Spring across the Lachung River, which is rich in sulphur, although it is mainly used for bathing purposes by the army personnel.

Return to Lachung for lunch. After lunch, visit Lachung Monastery, Cottage Industry and Waterfalls on your own. All these are within walking distance and can be visited while taking a stroll through Lachung. Overnight stay will be at Lachung.
