Yume Samdong (Zero Point), Lachung

4.6
#2 of 6 in Things to do in North Sikkim
Take a scenic drive up to Yume Samdong (Zero Point), near the border with Tibet. The road from Yumthang Valley ends here, after undulating through the rugged, mountainous terrain, along forests, rivers, and fields of azalea flowers. Trek the rough, snowy surroundings, take in the tranquil atmosphere, and enjoy the view of the imposing mountains at more than 4,500 m (15,000 ft). Due to the significant military presence and the Chinese border just a few miles away, you'll need a permit and the company of a guide to visit the area.

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.
