A village in North sikkim, Lachen is the starting point of the interesting treks in North Sikkim. It is also the gateway to the Holy Dongmar and Tso Lhamu lakes. It is a journey of 129 kilometers from Gangtok.

The Lachen Gompa can be visited and one can have a look at the simple village life of the Lachenpas. Lachen offers many panoramic views and stunning landscapes. It is a perfect destination to soak in the beauty of the hills, with the perfect view of the neatly sequenced alpine pastures. There are tranquil monasteries and waterfalls gushing down the scenic valleys. The fascinating adventure activities are a point of interest for the visitors too.
