LACHEN – Lachen is just another surprise unfold in the northern part of Sikkim. It is a small settlement with sublime beauty. The superlative beauty of Lachen requires certainly a keen eye to behold. For those, who have not traveled yet to Sikkim, it would be pleasant surprise to know that Lachen has been made accessible to the tourists just a few years back. Situated at an altitude of 8838 feet / 2750 meters Lachen lies on the North Sikkim Highway.

GURUDONGMAR LAKE (17,800 FEET) – It is considered as one of the sacred lakes of the State both by the Buddhists and the Hindus. The lake remains milky in colour throughout the year and it is believed that Guru Padmasambhava blessed it while returning from Tibet. A portion of lake does not freeze even in extreme winter. It is the largest perhaps the highest lake in Sikkim, India. The very appearance of serene waters of the lake brings a sense of relief to the beholder. Situated at an elevation of 17,100 feet (5148 meters), Gurudongmar Lake rests on the northern side of the Khangchengyao Range, in a high plateau area next to the Tibetan Plateau. Gurudongmar Lake is a watercourse of high reverence for the Sikkim’s and Buddhists.

YUMTHANG VALLEY: – Yumthang Valley is a grazing pasture surrounded by the Himalayan mountains in the North Sikkim district of Sikkim, India. It is at an elevation of 3,564 metres (11,800) above msl at a distance of 150 km from the state capital Gangtok. It is popularly known as ‘Valley of Flowers’.  It is also home to the Shingba Rhododendron Sanctuary, and has over twenty-four species of the rhododendron, the state flower. A tributary of the river Teesta flows past the valley and the town of Lachung, the nearest inhabited centre. Yumth ang is closed between December and March due to heavy snowfall.
