There is another lovely village near Gangtokwhere one can enjoy their stay – village of Lachung. The rock pinnacled valley walls, surrounded by beautiful waterfall, the village is quite an appealing site to the visitors. The village not only offers the serene beauty but also an opportunity to explore your adventurous side. One can take the cantilever bridge which is built across the Yumthang River to Sanchok and then climb 1.5 kms along the road to see the most astonishing views from Lachung Gompa.
The Lachung Gompa monastery was built in 1880 and still appears amazing. The gompa’s structure and fine art on the interiors as well as exteriors is mind blowing and tells about the artistic brilliance in the Lama culture. There are many hotels in the village which make your stay comfortable here. There is another gompa style building 3km south of Lachung is a worth visiting place. The mini-museum, library and a small bar are its main attractions. The houses in the village are quite beautiful too and so are the people. If you spend some time here, you are going to enjoy the stay.
