So, why miss this delightful chance?
Basking in the summer!
Adorned by snow-capped mountains, serene lakes, and enchanting greenery, Lachung can be visited throughout the year.
However, Lachung can be visited mainly during the summers here. The weather is not so hot thus making it easy for visitors to explore the surrounding beauty.
Packing summer clothes!
In the summers, light cotton clothing will do but do keep warm clothes to meet the uncertain frosty breeze. In hilly areas, when the sun appears it shines brightly. So try packing light clothes which will cover your body to avoid sun-tan.
