Chungthang lies at the confluence of two rivers, Lachen Chu and Lachung Chu ( in Lepcha language “Chu” means river) and the origination of mighty river Teesta, the life line of Sikkim and North Bengal. Now-a-days Chungthang has emerged as a major Sub-Division town of North Sikkim and is located around 100 kms from Gangtok – the capital of Sikkim.
Lepchas are mostly inhabited in this area and Chungthang is rich in bio-diversity with a rare variety of orchids, Flora and wildlife. From 15 kms from Chungthang and on the way to Lachung magnificent Beema Waterfalls is a prime attraction.
