Very good and cold obvious . Food and Shopping: Yeah did shopping in Gangtok. People should eat meat instead of fish. Cause meat is available. And must try momo . Highlight of the trip: Lachen and Lachung. Kala Pathhar and Gurudongmar.

Beautiful mountains and valleys

Lachung is a beautiful little town located in the valley of same name, surrounded by tall snookered mountains. It's the most popular destination in North Sikkim, many more tourists visit here than Lachen. Most tourists stay in their hotels for 1 night and also eat there since there are not many restaurants or even shacks outside of hotels. Most of the visitors do a package where they arrive in Lachung from Gangtok late afternoon (5-6 hours drive), stay overnight, visit Yumthang valley and/or Zero Point early next morning and then start back for Gangtok around noon. A few people also visit Mt Katao, but most skip it because it is somewhat similar to Zero Point. Apparently, in peak season the town and the nearby destinations can get quite crowded. It's a cold place all year round, so multiple layers of warm clothes are advised.

Excellent destination for flowers and ice lovers.

Best time to visit End of April to middle of May. On the way to zero point there are so many Rhododendron flowers with different colours. At zero point play with ice. Starting from Lachung your journey will be full with colours of Rhododendron. At the middle Yumthung valley. The Valley of small violet colours flower. After that your journey will be black and white because both sides only snow and rock.

Lachung is a very beautiful village. Scenic beauty is in bounty but since it is at high altitude during winter climate change is unpredictable. As it is a very small village one can't expect all services from few budget hotels which are around this village during winter. There is just one 4star property in this village. But overall it's a very beautiful and scenic place.

Feel the Nature at Lachung - Snow hills

Lachung... A best place a travellers must visit atleast once in his lifetime... Place that surrounded with Snow capped mountain makes to feel the Wonders the God's creation is... Best place to stay that you can enjoy Katao and Zeropoint the same day... Best time to visit is March and April so that you can enjoy the valley views...

Heaven on earth for snow lovers

Lachung is the base village to visit the yomthang vellay. It is around 124 km from Gangtok situated in North sikkim. Visit that vellay requirs permit and at least two days trip. Taxi drivers arrange complete package for you it includes lunch, dinner on 1st day and breakfast and lunch on second day. Food quality is not good so also carry your own arrangements as substitute.
Yes You will find snow at around 4-5km above the Lachung. And it is just like heaven. Cold snow but no wind hence you can enjoy a lot here. If you compare it with rohtang pass at manual it is more beautiful.
After visiting that place I can say you visit is incomplete if escaped the north sikkim.

Mesmerizing views of HIgher himalayas in North Sikkim town of Lachung

Lachung is an ideal destination for tourists craving to feel high altitude stay experience. At 9000-1000 feet one can surely have that chilled feeling. Winter months are very harsh

Untouched beauty created by god when almighty had time in hand

I must say that if my gal did not insisted I would not have been to this place to stay.
We stayed in hotelbTenzing retreat.
The beauty you see only you can share, I it is like remote but worth taking the pain to visit. No man can deny the charm of those snow clad mountains, every step you take you see hills are waiting for you with stunning view. People say that if there is any heaven it is Kashmir, I must say you go there & then decide if Lachung is any less beautiful than Kashmir,

Zero point is amazing with snow. There are huge snow in mountain. But very cold about 2c. If you tour with child then keep korpur tab because there oxygen level is very low for that may be breathing problem. There are many types of stall where available hot drinks cofee magi and other snacks. The view of snow is very beautiful
