Lachung

It is located at 8,610ft near the border with China and 118km from Gangtok. An idyllic mountain village set amidst primulas and rhododendrons and resplendent in its crown of snow-capped mountains, breath-taking waterfalls and sparkling streams, Lachung permeates an ethereal alpine glow. Lachung means small pass and Yumthang, the valley of flowers have been described as the most picturesque places in Sikkim by Dr Joseph Hooker in his ‘Himalayan Journey’ (1855), comparing its general features with those of the narrow Swiss Valleys. The hardy stock of Bhutias of Lachung and Lachen call themselves Lachungpas and Lachenpas and have their own self-governing body ‘Dzumsa’ where all local disputes are settled by consensus.

 

Yumthang: (24 km)

  • It is located at 11,800ft and 24 km from Lachung. Yumthang or the Valley of Flowers is where the tree line end and the rhododendron groves cover the landscape in a surreal shade. From March-May the entire stretch is aflame with rhododendron and beneath your feet is an endless carpet of bright alpine flowers. Before entering the valley a small pedestrian road goes through a small bridge which connects Yumthang Hot Spring. The sulphur rich water that emanates from a small spring is diverted inside a hut where two pools are made for bathers, wanting to heal themselves. You can also engage in angling at the nearby Yumthang Chhu and Phuniya Chhu.

Yumesamdong: (43 km)

  • About 23 km ahead of Yumthang on the border part of the Lachung valley are the hot spring of Yumesamdong above 15,000ft on the river Sebu Chhu at the foot of the mountain on which lies the Donkia-La (18,400ft). Donkia-la connects Lachung Valley to Lachen Valley. At Yumesamdong, three rivers meet providing yet another scenic view.

Katao: (24 km)

  • Another place of interest is Katao at 12,600ft, where Thanka-La borders India and China. There is also Dombang forest another heaven of rhododendron and primulas. The 30 minutes drive from Lachung to Katao is considered one of the most scenic.
