Whatever you decide to do on your Lachen trip, you'll remember it by the unsurpassed beauty of its landscapes and vibrant local culture. Located in the lower Himalayas 2,750 m (8,838 ft) above sea level, this quaint mountain village with less than 200 homes serves as the gateway to the famous Chopta Valley and the sacred Gurudongmar Lake. Some of the most interesting treks in North Sikkim start from here. How you'll experience the village's picturesque surroundings depends on the season: the spring paints the grassy mountain slopes with flowers, while the winter blankets everything with snow. A visit to the local monastery and the women's handicraft center affords insights into the local way of life. If you visit Lachen in the summer, you'll get the chance to see the annual yak race. Add Lachen and other destinations to your itinerary using our India online trip itinerary maker, and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
