Top Places To Visit in Chungthang 1 Spots
The Lachen River which flows from the mountains meets the Teesta River at a point called Chungthang. From here we travel north again on the other side of huge mountains along the Lachung River to the village of Lachung. We made it to the village by late afternoon the same day. Situated en route to Yumthang Valley, this area is known for its varieties of Rhododendron flowers. We stayed here for another high altitude cold night and decided to head to the valley in the morning.
