What is the best attraction on 4N 5D North Sikkim Tour Plan ?

Gurudongmar Lake is the incomparable attraction in entire North-Sikkim. While the roads are not yet finished in large stages of the
journey from Lachen, the stunning natural beauty of the place makes you forget the hardship and biting cold. This is practically Tibet and the landscape can’t get any better than this possibly. The lake has clear blue water, the sky is deep blue, the snow covered peaks and glaciers totally unreal. The high altitude can affect you, but if you acclimatize properly, should not be a problem. Don’t run around, be calm, breathe slowly. Enjoy the landscape and be one with nature.

Gurudongmar lake is located at an extreme corner of India and to visit the lake,an overnight stay is essential at Lachen which is a small beautiful town in North Sikkim and the nearest tourist accommodation center also. Lachen is 68 km away from Gurudongmar lake,so after an overnight stay at Lachen, we started our journey at 5 am with our packed breakfast. Journey was for three hours with engulfing the splendid scenic beauty & snow covered high altitude mountains were coming closer gradually when our car moving nearest to the lake. At an altitude of 17,100 ft Gurudongmar lies in the north side of the Kanchenjungha range & also is encircled all around by snow covered mountains. It’s a sacred and one of the highest lake in the world. Due to high altitude breathing problems may occur. Despite of difficulty or hardship, one time visit to the lake as an experience of a lifetime.

7 Wonders of North Sikkim Lachen Lachung Family Tour

This place is somewhat around 1 hour journey from small village yumthang and is almost heaven for nature lovers and you will find rhododendron flowers everywhere of different colors which makes this valley unique. If u wish to see these flowers in full bloom then visit in April end.

Gurudongmar Lake is a place which one cannot explain in words. You have to visit to be aw struken, this place is magic. God created Marvel for our eyes to feast on and our body to experience. As per the travelers, they are demanding that the beauty of Lachung to Gurudongmar is much more than paradise.

You would special permission from the Indian army and Sikkim Police/ Administration to visit this lake since it’s only a couple of kilometres from the Indo-China border.

You first reach Yumthang valley from Lachung, but suggest to go to Zero Point first. Zero point is located at altitude of 14500 ft and oxygen is less. It is a plateau covered with snow. Altitude related sickness can be caused hence precautions need to be taken. Smelling Karpur (used for aarti/prayer), Chewing Adrak helps. Local also sells Pop-corn to mitigate altitude related sickness

The mountains are magnificent. There are great sights with interspersing white and green all over. Some of the sights are right out of a picture book from the European Alps, if not better.

The place is also good for walking around. The roads are reasonably well maintained too thanks as always to the Indian Army.

On the way to returning from Gurudongmar lake visit Kalapathar via chopta valley. The only colors were black and white… the whole area were covered with snow and some black rocks broke the monotony of snow white.. The tempaarature of the place used to lie below zero and snow exists through out the year… this is not as high as Gurudongmar lake.. so less chance of breathing problems and high altitude sickness… that’s why children can enjoy in snow making snow idol etc… Every Gurudongmar traveller should go Kalapathar on the way back Lachen.

Snuggled in the lap of Eastern Himalayas, Mangan stand amongst one of the top tourism places in North-Sikkim, attracting vacationers, nature lovers and soul seekers from different parts of India and the world. This little village is blessed with an adorable enticing scenic beauty which is simply magical enough to captivate anyone’s heart and soul in just no time. The place is no less than an empyrean for spirituality seekers too; soaked in deep aura of Buddhism with colourful prayer flags fluttering all around and chanting of Buddhist mantras reverberating in the air, it simply makes for a tranquil place to just sit back, relax and meditate connecting oneself with the ultimate supreme power. Truly one of the best kept secrets of Sikkim, it makes for a perfect decision to shortlist Mangan on your itineraries whenever planning a trip to North East India the next time.

This is not easy to find co-operative travel agent all the time. Travel agency is much more important, when you are travelling with only Girls group or travelling to restricted or any border area. Same like last 2019 December we 6 housewives travel to North Sikkim from Ahmedabad. Mr. Dhar suggested me an amazing paceful itinerary. We enjoyed a lot , collected numeros memories & photos. I strongly recommend #ADSR to my near & dear ones.
