A small and a charming town in North Sikkim district of Sikkim, Lachen can be covered in a single day. A trip to Lachen will always remain evergreen in your memory.

There is something magical about early morning in hilly areas and in Lachen it is more enchanting than anywhere else. So, start early morning, have a heavy breakfast, witness the mist-laden sunrise and hop on to your jeep.

Drive towards the direction of the Lachen Monastery. After stopping the jeep at the foothills, you have to trek up towards the monastery on the hill. Take your time to explore and admire the trekking trail as it is known for its alpine forest and the beautiful view of the village below.

Being a small town, there is nothing much to see in Lachen but if you are interested in outdoor activities like trekking and hiking, Lachen serves as the starting point for many popular trekking places. The best one is perhaps the Gurudongmar Lake. To know more about the lake, you can check out the related query on Gurudongmar Lake.

Drive a distance of 4 hours from Lachen and discover heavenly beauty at Guru Dongmar Lake. If you have packed lunch, have it as you sit by the lake and if you haven’t you can have it at roadside dhabas, as there will be hardly any restaurant on the way to Guru Dongmar Lake.

By the time you head back to your hotel in Lachen, it will be already evening but you can go for a quick shopping at the handicraft shop. To know more about it, visit out The Handicraft Centre and The Angora Rabbit Farm information page. You will get mostly woollen hand-made products and Buddhist prayer items.
