We started from Gangtok to Lachung in morning and travel was quite pleasant, through lush green mountains, with milky streams passing by the hilly roads. Even though you are captivated in the car, you would scramble to take photographs of green landscape and colorful flowers along the way.

Since the travel time was quite a bit, we had already ordered lunch through our car driver. The lunch break was in beautiful village of Chungthang. The pleasant people there were already expecting us, to serve us piping hot food. We have a tasty lunch of dal, rice, vegetables. After finishing the lunch, we had a stroll in village and visited Shiva Temple opposite Chunthang Post Office.

We reached our Hotel Apple Valley Inn at Lachung in evening. Lachung is a little village on the hill-side and serves as transit points for people visiting Yumthang Valley and Zero-Point.

The road was long and tiring. Make sure to book a good cab with good suspension. Itís an 8-10 hours of road travel. We started in the morning. The journey was pleasant and the valley was full of picturesque sights. Grab a good camera. There are very few restaurants to dine. The whole route hotels, sleep by six or seven. So please carry your own edibles.

The drive to Lachung is amazing but there are practically no roads so be prepared for the journey. Please equip yourself with water and food from Gangtok as not many hotels on the way. People with weak backs please avoid.

Though after reaching Lachung it is amazingly beautiful. Quaint little place with wooden logged house and clean air makes you forget the treacherous journey. From Lachung one goes to zero point and the drive is beautiful with rhododendron trees all around you. Again let me warn you the the road is bad. 2-3 months back there was a huge landslide which has created a lake which is breathtaking.

My advice please stay for two nights in Lachung.
