The next day, we started to Lachung, which is almost 8 to 10 hours from Gangtok. By the time we reached the place, it was around 7pm and the weather was extremely cold.
Lachung is a village in Sikkim and the hotels here lack certain facilities like room heaters. While the stay at Gangtok rescued us from the cold with room heater, here, only the local alcohol had that power. Even if you haven't tasted alcohol, the cold in this place will make you taste the local wine.
The midnight at Lachung reached low temperature (-20 degree Celsius) and we had breathing issues struggling to sleep. We thought choosing this place was a terrible decision. At one point, we even doubted that we'd survive considering the breathing inconsistency.
However, the next day morning, around 6 am, we woke up to the most beautiful and scintillating sunrise. It was as if heaven had landed in Lachung to give visitors its glimpse. The view made us forget the night we had spent with all the breathing issues.
