So, it's time to plan your next vacation and you have already made up your mind to explore the wondrous beauty of Lachen. Want to know about the different modes which will get you there? Don't worry, we have something for you. Take a look:


  • Road:

    Getting to lachen by road will not be a problem for you as it is at a distance of 129 kms from
    Gangtok. All your exhaustion will get washed away in the refreshing six hours drive by road leaving you awestruck by the amazingly beautiful sites encountered on the way. Buses and jeeps are available for reaching Lachen from Gangtok but if you are in for some adventure then a two day trekking route from Yumthang valley will be a treat for you.


  • Rail

    Opt for traveling by trains if the curvy roads make you giddy. Due to the hilly terrain of Sikkim, its territory is devoid of any railway station. The nearest railway station to Sikkim is New Jalpaiguri which is near Siliguri town and 117 kms away from Gangtok. Taxis charging INR 100 per person are available from the station. Buses from Siliguri are available from SNT (Sikkim National Transport) Bus Terminus, near Tenzing Norgay bus terminus, Taxis are available from Taxi Stand opposite SNT Bus Terminus. You can take a bus or jeep from Gangtok to reach Lachen. The journey might look a little taxing making you tired but the treasure that awaits to be explored will be worth your pain. Do not hesitate, book your tickets and once its done pack your bags and get set to enjoy the divine ambience of Lanchen.


  • Air

    If you are on a tight schedule wanting to save some time and don't mind spending then you can opt for flying to Siliguri. Sikkim is devoid of an airport owing to its rough terrain and so the nearest airport is Bagdogra airport, near Siliguri. Buses from Siliguri are available from SNT (Sikkim National Transport) Bus Terminus, near Tenzing Norgay bus terminus, Taxis are available from Taxi Stand opposite SNT Bus Terminus. You can take a bus or jeep from Gangtok to reach Lachen.
