Day 1: Gangtok to Lachen
After breakfast, you’ll be picked up from the hotel at Gangtok at about 10 a.m. towards Lachen via NH 31A. On the way stop and enjoy a few wonderful locations like:
This is where a friendship treaty between Lepcha Chief Te-Kung-Tek and the Bhutia Chief Khey-Bum-Sar was signed. A small stone pillar was built to mark the location where the treaty was signed.
Seven Sister Waterfalls
The name is given to this waterfall as it makes its descent in seven stages, before gushing down through the dense forest and hitting the rock. This magnificent fall on the way to Lachen is sure to allure the tourist with its beauty in the background of lush-green Mountain. To facilitate the tourists to savor the pristine beauty and to be with nature, the Tourism Department has set up a waiting shed and cafeteria.
Another picturesque waterfall in North Sikkim near the confluence of Lachen-Chu and Lachung-Chu at Chungthang. This the most scenic waterfall with the longest route and ice-cold water surrounded by forest in a peaceful domain. Lunch will be served at Hotel after reaching Lachen in the evening.
The name Lachen means "Big Pass" nestled at an altitude of 8838 ft in North Sikkim, this peaceful place is secluded far from the noisy city between Chopta Valley and Gurudongmar Lake. The small town is beautifully decorated with little hamlets in the background of the Lower Himalayas with their snowy cliffs and tall pine trees.
After check-in to the hotel, head straight towards the cozy room equipped with basic amenities and facing the beautiful green mountain.
