Lachung situated at an altitude of 8610 ft in North Sikkim is located in 128 kms from Gangtok is the most remote destination in India. Areas around Lachung are renowned for its exceptional Himalayan views. Sprawled across the banks of the Lachung River which slices the village in two, Lachung is famous for its apples, peaches and apricots. Despite throwing its doors open to tourists, Lachung still retains its distinctive culture and tradition, including the unique system of self-governance called Zumsa where all local disputes are settled by a representative body of the village which is headed by an elected Pipon.

At Lachung you can visit the Lachung Gompa, built around 1880. Another attraction is the handicraft center which has exquisitely woven rugs and blankets. You can also visit the Shingba Rhododendron sanctuary through which flows the Yumthang River. The sanctuary is known for its abundance of Rhododendron trees and shrubs. Lachung is perfect for an overnight halt before you visit the spectacular Yumthang valley.

Lachung Homestay – North Sikkim

This is s very beautiful homestay with welcoming hosts. A perfect place to enjoy nature.



Ratnavali Dutta_ Lachung

We had an amazing trip of North Sikkim with your team "Homestays of India". Your Homestay at Lachung stole our heart. Its the most amazing place to stay in Lachung i m sure. The rooms had lovely View of Snowy peaks and Teesta together from the balcony. Also fresh and hot homemade food was the best that we could get at such heights which gave us strength to sustain and survive the rough terrains of the location. Amazing Homestay. We truly felt at Home.

Built on a mountain slope, it has a great view of the nearby snow capped mountains. The food is very good and the host is knowledgeable and friendly. Overall, it's very cozy and nice place to stay at Lachung.
