Overview Overview

Sikkim is a little northeastern state, which is nestled between the borders of Nepal and Bhutan. It is the least populous and second smallest amongst the Indian states. The state makes up for its small size in terms of its natural beauty, mystic mountains, beautiful valleys and acres of lush green forests.

“Nathula pass” is a mountain pass which lies in the Eastern side of Sikkim surrounded by the mighty Himalayas. In Tibetan language, Nathu means “listening ears” and la means “pass”. It is located at an altitude of 14,140 feet above sea level which makes it one of the highest mountain passes in the world which is accessible to humans. The view is quite majestic as you would expect from a high mountain pass and the place is away from the hustle and bustle of the touristic places which makes it one of a kind experience.

Changu/Tsomgo Lake is a glacial lake in the East Sikkim district around 40kms from the capital Gangtok. It is one of the highest glacial lakes in the world with a height of almost 3,753 mts. This lake remains frozen for almost throughout the year. You can enjoy a Yak ride while here and there is also a Shiva Temple which is located here which is considered sacred by the locals.

Lachen is a town in Northern parts of Sikkim which is at an elevation of 2,750mts. The name Lachen means “big pass”. The town is the base point for Gurudongmar Lake and Chopta Valley. Lachen is characterized by rough terrains and hills, acres of lush green forests and wildflowers that can be seen everywhere. Lachen Chu is a mountain stream which flows by the town of Lachen which makes up for a beautiful view. For trek lovers, there are two treks here that you can go for, namely the Green Lake trek and the Chopta Valley trek.

Gurudongmar Lake is one of the highest lakes in India and the world, located at an altitude of around 17,800fts. The lake is considered sacred by Hindus, Sikhs and Buddhists. The lake has several legends associated with it, one of them being that it’s a wish granting lake. When you visit the lake, this would be your once in a lifetime experience as this lake is such a high altitude that it makes up for a surreal experience and the place is really calm and peaceful.

Travelling through North Sikkim, you will reach Lachung which is a sleepy town and hill station located at an altitude of 9,600fts. Unlike Lachen, the word Lachung means, “small pass”. Joseph Dalton Hooker in his book, the “Himalayan Journal” described it as the “most picturesque village of Sikkim”. Lachung is less colder than Lachen and it is famous for some of the best Tibetan food in Sikkim. While in Lachung, you can visit Lachung Monastery which has ancient sculptures, wall murals and much more. You can also buy rugs, shawls and carpets made by the locals.

Yumthang Valley or Sikkim Valley of flowers sanctuary is surrounded by Himalayas located in the North Sikkim district located at an altitude of 11,693 fts. The river Teesta flows here and the valley has many hot springs and yaks. The best time to visit Yumthang valley is from Feb to June when there is flowering season and you can expect full bloom of flowers everywhere. In winters September to December is an ideal time to experience frozen lakes and snow capped peaks.
