So, wake up as early (4am) as you can and get ready for your Gurugongmar Lake Tour - one of the most sacred lakes believed by the Buddhists and Hindus alike. On the way we will visit some of the best sightseeing places in Lachen:
Thangu Valley: This is the first stop on the way to Gurudongmar Lake from Lachen. Located at an altitude of 13000 ft, this is 2 hrs journeys [35km] from Lachen. Basically this is a small hamlet with a few small wooden cottage and shops scattered nearby. This is a place with nature packed treasures all around. With snow capped mountain peaks all around and lots of streams, Thangu is a perfect halt to get fresh during this long strenuous journey. You can have tea, momo, noodles steaming hot that can boost you to go further. Because of its altitude, the valley is covered with snow most of the time in the year except summer. Full bloom Rhododendron in different colors and primulas all over, the valley become treasure hunt for travelers and trekkers. Spending some time here will make you feel good.
Chopta Valley: At an altitude of 13,100ft visiting this awe awe-inspiring valley is a must to behold the love of nature. This valley with its all grandeur offers immense peace to visitors with its tranquility and serenity. During summer, the valley become live with purple primulas all around and in winter the snow carpet offers wonderful view.
Kalapatthar: From Chopta valley on the way to Gurudongmar Lake visiting Kalapatthar is a must. As the place is below altitude then Gurudongmar Lake, high altitude sickness is less experience. Snow all around through the year is the cherry on top during your tour. With white snow all around and black rocks popping out in between makes the place an artist canvas with black and white painting. Here you can experience sub zero temperature between -4 to -10 degrees. You can experience 3 to 6ft snow all around and can play with it. Children prefer to make snow man and play with snow. Spend some time here, enjoy the beauty of Kalapatthar which is terribly good and heads towards Gurudongmar Lake.
As you proceed towards the lake, you will notice the geographical change. Gradually the land will become barren with less vegetation. Mainly shrubs and small bushy plants like rhododendron can be spotted here and there. You will be driving through the roads that will make you feel similar like Ladakh Tour from Kolkata. Soon you will notice snow capped High Mountain that marks that Lake Gurudongmar is near.
After arriving this wonderful place, behold the magnificent snow capped mountain and their reflections in the water of the lake. It is absolute bliss to be here. Roam around the banks, touch the water of the lake, feel its purity. You can visit the nearby temple or gompha where local people offer prayer and puja. You can hardly stay here for 30 to 45 minutes as it is extremely high altitude and breathing problem is inevitable due to scarcity of oxygen. So, don’t spend much time here and get down as early as possible.
The beautiful and awe inspiring lake remains milky in color throughout the year. According to a legend, since the lake used to remain frozen most of the year, it was not possible to use its water for drinking purposes. When the Guru Padmasambhava passed by, while returning from Tibet, the local residents are reported to have approached him for providing source of water. The Guru obliged. A portion of the lake touched by him does not freeze in extreme winter. Since water of the lake is considered sacred, visitors carry the 'blessed' water in bottles.
TIPS: While visiting Gurudongmar Lake, proper permits must be obtained from the local authority and frequent checking by the Army personal can be noticed as the area is vicinity of Indo-China border. Carry proper documents like Voter ID Card, Passport or Driving License etc in original and photocopy also along with some passport size photograph.
Come back to Lachen Hotel within 2 to 3pm, get refreshed and have lunch. After that heads towards Lachung Tour.

Sikkim / Gangtok Package Tour Reviews
4.4 Stars Rating, out of 5
based on 998 Reviews
We availed services from NatureWings for our Sikkim Darjeeling Tour last month December 12, 2019. We had a great time and our itinerary was smoothly and efficiently managed without any hiccups. Special mention for Indrajit and Arpan who catered to our grievances immediately. The hotels were good and booked in some of the top localities across Sikkim and Darjeeling with good accessibility and all the transport facilities and vehicles were excellent. We would specially like to mention our driver in Darjeeling Mr. Pritam for his outstanding service and punctuality. Overall we found the package to be a little expensive since we had to pay separately for Nathula and zero point (total of Rs 6500 for both since it was subject to availability of vehicle permit) and an additional Rs 1200 for a halt at Buddha Park in Ravangla. I would like to give a minor suggestion to the team to include major tourist points that fall on the way for eg. in our case Chardham at Namchi and Buddha Park at Ravangla fell on our way to Pelling from Gangtok.
We went to Sikkim December 12, 2019 and had a great time. Naturewings made our trip smooth and beautiful.
We had a wonderful trip in the chilling weather of Gangtok and with a touch of Pelling & Ravangla. We had a family trip from Mumbai and It was well organized trip.

"We have recently traveled to Sikkim via Majestic Sikkim Package offered by NatureWings. First thing, NatureWings is not like other business oriented tour operator. They have capacity to understand what you are looking for & make best out of it. They have lot to offer while planning your trip and more than that, They will share their quality time with u to make sure you get everything you need, like finding hotel in Gangtok/Darjeeling and inform you on what placers you can visit while you are going out for sight seeing. They have arranged transport for specifically for our Family. The driver was not just guy with you but he actually becomes one of your buddies and join with you.
Saikat Dey from Nature Wings is constantly in touch with our right from start of our trip until the end and ensured that we received best out of this trip. He used to follow up daily during our trip to ensure the services we received were up to the mark.
I give Saikat Dey and Nature wings 5/5 for the amazing service they offered and will be looking forward for one more amazing trip."
"We have just completed our West Sikkim Trip with NatureWings today. Enroute we have visited Kaluk, Uttarey, Borong, Ravangla, Namchi etc. All the places are full of scenic beauty. Our trip with Naturewings is simply wonderful. They will always give you the best accomodation and transport with reasonable package cost. The Ghonday Resort at Kaluk is one of the best resort I have ever visited. The cars were also comfortable and having expert drivers. Thanks to Naturewings for arranging so much memorable vacation for me and my family. Looking forward to travel with Naturewings soon. Special thanks to Arpita Madam for a great coordination."
"We just returned from the west Sikkim Tour, packaged and arranged by 'Naturewings' route Gangtok - Kaluk - Pelling - Ravangla. Can't wait to share few things here…the driver we got, was an experienced young locale chap, who knows the hills very well. He shared his little tips as a guide beyond just driving. Quality of the hotels were very high class. We got warm and comfortable rooms, along with the hot and fresh foods. Their hospitality touched our mind. The package was beyond our expectations within this price range. Overall, it was a life time experience for me and my family. We will look forward for more tours from 'NatureWings' in the future, for sure."
