On the way we visited Lava Monastery. It is situated near Lava Bazar.
after breakfast we headed towards kalimpong district,mainly lava. It takes around 3hr to reach lava. Lava is popular for it's dense pine Forest and old monastery. It's situated 7016 ft above the sea level. It's the entry point of neora valley national park. There are ample hotels and homestays in lava, one can also book a tent in the forest.Lava monastery was built in 1987 and presently accommodates over 100 monks. The tranquility of the place will instantly make anyone calm and stress-free. I love travelling to Buddhist gomphas/monastery. These are very integral part of the Himalayas. No travel is complete without knowing the locals, their daily life and culture.
