One can walk down to the banks of the river here. There are some hot water springs close by - one could visit them as well. We travelled in... More

It just gets very difficult to describe the beauty of this place. Its on the way to Zero Point and my suggestion is that you stop at the lake once you are done with Zero Point. The river water is freezing and the flow is tremendous so you need to be careful if you want to step in. You get... More

Mountains lined with snow and vegetation and the Lachung river flowing by it is traveler's delight. Lachung has banned bottled water so one needs to manage with the options available locally.
