5 Night 6 Days Gangtok Lachung Package
This 5 nights and 6 days Gangtok and Lachung package starts from Gangtok, which is the capital city of the state of Sikkim. Imagine a city, amidst the backdrop of Himalayana mountains with a river flowing by and lush green forests adding to its beauty, that is Gangtok for you. Gangtok has many gems waiting to be discovered, one of them being Do-Drul Chorten. It is a stupa which is surrounded by 108 prayer wheels. According to the legends, this entire place was haunted by evil spirits and there were many fatalities due to this. A very respected and celebrated lama of Tibet Trulshig Rinpoche who followed the Nyingma order of Buddhism came to this place for hermitage and built this stupa in 1946 to drive away the spirits.
Other places in Gangtok include Namgyal institute of Tibetology, which is a museum that documents the art, history, language and culture of the Tibetan community. Its library holds one of the largest collections of the Tibetan work in the world outside Tibet. Bakthang waterfall is a really unique waterfall, it's not at a great vertical height but its horizontal flow of water makes it really beautiful. In Sikkimese language ‘Bak’ means jungle and ‘Thang’ means meadow.
Ganesh Tok is a small temple which offers a panoramic view of Sikkim and you also might spot Khangchendzonga on a clear day.
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. You can also try a local cable car ride here which will offer you a panoramic view of the lake and surroundings from a vantage point.
“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.
Lachung 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.
These places make up for a perfect tour in the little northeastern state of Sikkim. The best time to visit Sikkim would be in the months from April to June in summers. In summers, you can expect to see rhododendrons and orchids in full bloom in the valleys of Sikkim which makes for a really surreal experience. The summer months are really pleasant with temperatures ranging from 12 degrees centigrade to 28 degrees centigrade
During winter months, you can expect to see the mountains and valleys covered in snow, which make up for a beautiful experience.
