If you visit Lava in West Bengal, you will notice something unique about this place. It is the only region here that receives snow in winter. As you travel to Lava, you will come across picturesque vegetation that varies from tropical deciduous to the wet alpine trees of pine, fir and birch. Those who reside on the coastal regions of West Bengal make it here for vacations. You will find log guest houses in the middle of the forest and this makes it possible to experience wildlife. Visit Lava Jamgyong Kongtrul Monastery and the famous Changey Waterfalls. It is truly a heaven, when it comes to bird watching here. There are countless species of birds. Should you like to view the entire Kanchenjunga range, you will have to tour Lolegaon. The hanging bridge here offers the endless view of the forest from the top. Try out trekking through the forest and the villages to have a memorable experience. Shopoholics might get disappointed here as you will find few shops, only selling souvenirs. There is an interesting place with an equally interesting name called the Icchey Gaon or a ‘Wishing Village’. Yes, a place that will fulfil your wishes to have a stay amongst nature, that is pure. Wake up with the alarm made by the twittering of the birds. Enjoy the majestic view of Mt. Kanchenjungha. The view points worth mentioning are Ramitey Dara, the Jalsa viewpoint and the fascinating beauty of the Silence Valley. Do not miss visiting the 300 year old Sangchen Dorjee Monastery, built during the Bhutanese domination in Pedong. The new section of this monastery contains the mummified body of a Bhutanese priest. If you happen to be here during April-May, witness the ‘Chyam’ dance, celebrated with great splendour.
