An area dedicated to the Lepchas, Dzongu is a heaven on earth. Located in the North District of Sikkim yet only 70 KMs from Gangtok, Dzongu is both a travelers and trekkers paradise. Surrounded by jungles, glacial streams and beautiful waterfalls this place is definitely a worth visit while travelling to Sikkim.
Lachen is located on the right bank of the Lachen Chu at 2700 M above sea level. Despite rampant urbanization, Lachen still retains the traditional mountain village’s purity. The reason to stay at Lachen is obviously to move more north towards Tsopta Valley (3850 M) and the majestic Gurudongmer Lake (5150 M).
If you are willing to visit the Yumthang valley, Lachung is the most popular (and essential) stay point at North Sikkim. The scattered village of Lachung resides between the elevated rock-spired valley walls decorated with the fabric of waterfalls.
