Lachung

4.1
Hot Springs · Valleys · Waterfalls
Perched high in the Himalayas, Lachung offers quintessential mountain scenery and small-village hospitality, making it one of India's most beloved destinations. With excellent skiing available between October and May and the city serving as the gateway to several scenic treks, Lachung vacations appeal mainly to adventurous, outdoorsy types. Accessible only after obtaining a special permit and taking a 4x4 trip from nearby Gangtok, the isolated village retains its untouched charm. Bring plenty of supplies from Gangtok, as opportunities to buy even essentials in Lachung can be limited. Plan how to spend your time in Lachung and other destinations in India using our India day trip planner.

Where to stay in Lachung

Considering its isolated location, Lachung offers a good selection of accommodations catering to the winter vacationers. Most of these sit just north of town, providing easier access to skiing and hiking areas. Expect to pay a bit more at these larger, resort-style accommodations, or look for the budget-friendly guesthouses in the town itself.
