Lava – What to See

Posted: March 22, 2012 in Lava

Panoramic snow views: Mt Kanchenjunga, Mt Siniolchu, Jalep La Pass, and Rechila Pass. Best view points are Sherpa view point and Tiffin Dara

Nature Interpretation Centre: Operated by the Forest Department, focuses on flora, fauna and local people interacting with ecology to conserve soil and forests of the area.

Lava Jamgyong Kongtrul Monastery and Ngedon Chag-Chen Ling Retreat:
Since 1987 on a hill, overlooking the snow-mountain range to the north, the Monastery is surrounded by ancient forests and enveloped in mists for most of the year. In this remote, secluded place, monks in the Monastery are intensively engaged in Buddhist studies. There is also a 3-year retreat centre, Ngedon Chag-Chen Ling, which follows the ancient contemplative tradition of the Shangpa Kagyu lineage.

Neora National Park: Lava is the gateway to the Neora National Park standing hidden in the mist & clouds almost throughout the year at a height of about 2350 mts (7755 ft). This National Park is at the junction of Sikkim, West Bengal and Bhutan. A short trek of 3 days will cover Rachela Danda (Tri-junction of West Bengal, Bhutan and Sikkim).
