When I went to North Sikkim in April, little did I know about this place called Katao. While our plans to go to Yumthang valley failed mid-way due to bad weather, our driver suggested we visit this place. Having nothing else to do, we obliged. And boy! I can't imagine how much I would have missed if we didn't visit Katao.

Katao is the name of a majestic mountain, located 28 kms from Lachung and goes to an altitude of ~ 15000 ft. This peak marks the border of India and Tibet. It is easily the most spectacular peak I've ever been to. The views and journey to the top still feels surreal. The best part is a stunning waterfall at the top of the peak that feels like a dreamland with glaciers on each side of the fall and the gushing sound the water makes amidst absolute silence.
