A Tibetan village with a unique local and traditional self-government body called the Zumsa, Lachung is situated at an altitude of 9000ft. Lachung is the last village in North Sikkim before Yumthang and has emerged as a tourist destination because of its natural environ and the popularity of Yumthang valley that is just 24 kilometers from here. Lachung is about 110 kms from Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim, the road to Lachung passes through some of the difficult terrain in sikkim full of picturesque waterfalls and great views. Tourism in the region has been opened to Indian and foreign nationals only recently. The tourism infrastructure here is only basic. But this is more than offset by the natural beauty of the place.
