Chungthang Tourism & Travel Guide

Chungthang is a town in North Sikkim locale in the Indian state of Sikkim. Located at a separation of 95 kilometers (59 mi) from the capital Gangtok, the Indian Army has a very important forward base with a restorative focus in Chungthang.According to a legend, the Buddhist Guru Padmasambhava went by the town before going to Tibet and left his foot shaped impression on a stone where he once rested. Around the stone some paddy rice grew, which should be a wonder as paddy does not grow in these conditions. The nature resisting supernatural occurrence is accepted to be the gift of Guru Padmasambhava who moistened a handful bunch of grain on the spot which has grown paddy from that point forward. Nearby individuals earned their employment on these paddy fields before the Indian Army was sent here. Most of the town's inhabitants are Lepcha. Chungthang is rich in biodiversity with a wide mixed bag of orchids, plants and living creatures.
