Things to do

Just looking at the picturesque surroundings can cause you to lose track of time as you are enveloped by the tranquility and serenity that prevails in Lachung. Literally meaning ‘small pass’, it is one of the most beautiful villages in the state.

Curling up in a cozy nook with a book from the well-stocked library or catching a movie on the DVD player are some things you can do to relax. A snooker and pool room is available should you need some gentle exercise. The wellness centre is an ideal destination if relaxation and rejuvenation are what you seek.

If adventure and exploration are more your cup of tea then there are plenty of things to do and see in the vicinity. Yumthang Valley, popularly known as the ‘Valley of Flowers’, is a major tourist attraction near Lachung. The pasture land at almost 12,000 ft, is a riot of colours in spring time with its carpet of blossoming flowers. En route to Yumthang, you can also stop by Shingba Rhododendron Sanctuary which is home to the state tree rhododendron niveum.

Yumesamdong or Zero Point is near to the Indo-Chinese border and is a place with perennial snow. Situated at an altitude of 15,300 ft, it is worth a visit for its stunning landscape.
