North Sikkim’s Lachung-Yumthang axis to reopen for tourists

Lachung-Yumthang axis in North Sikkim is set to re-open for tourists and visitors along Sankalang- Toong-Chungthang Road from December 1, having been closed since floods on the Teesta River in October.

Prakash Chettri, Tourism Secretary, Sikkim, said, “Lachung – Yumthang point has now been made accessible from another route of Sankalang – Toong – Chungthang Road. This new route is around 16 kilometres longer than the normal route to Lachung. The tourism department had issued an advisory for a month that all places are safe to visit except for extreme North Sikkim following the flood on River Teesta due to Lhonak Lake outburst”.

However, Lachen – Gurudongmar point will remain inaccessible, and the restoration work has been going on in full swing, he said.
