Lachung Monastery/gompa in Lachung is a famous holy place of worship in the tiny town. It is located at the confluence of two rivers - Lachung and Lachen and is at an altitude of 12,000 ft above sea level. It is a Nyngma Buddhist Gompa that was built in the year 1880. Surrounded by lovely apple orchards, the monastery provides alluring views of the countryside and the entire of the Lachung Valley.
Mt. Katao is located about 30 km away from the Lachung Gompa (Lachung Monastery) and is often visited by tourists from Bengal who drive up the hill to enjoy and play with the snow. This site is, however, not frequented by foreign tourists. If you love to play with snow, this is a place which you shouldn't miss.
