Welcome to Lachen

Lachen can also be used as the trailhead for eight-day expeditionary treks to Green Lake (5050m) towards Khangchendzonga’s northeast face. The trek is partly along the Zemu Glacier, considered the legendary home of the yeti (aka 'the abominable snowman'). Until 2015, permits had to be applied for in Delhi and could take months. But that's changed – at least for a trial period – and the paperwork can now be sorted in a week or so. Contact Namgyal Treks & Tours in Gangtok for information and assistance.
