The weather was cloudy, rainy, and chilly (7 deg Celcius in April). Sometimes these combination creates wonderful photo opportunities like this.
It is a very colorful village with every building (most probably a hotel) very well decorated from the outside. It is very enjoyable to take a walk over here with snow-peaked mountains on one side and a river flowing down.
This town is at an altitude of 8,500 ft and is used as a stopover to acclimatize before tourists visit Gurudongmar Lake at an altitude of 17,800 ft. Reaching Lachen takes almost a day (6-7hrs drive) from Gangtok which is the capital of Sikkim.
Foreigners don't usually visit this village. They are not allowed to travel farther north to the lake as it is very close to India-China international border.
