Snowbound Lachen

SNOWBOUND LACHEN: The higher reaches of North Sikkim were treated to a fresh blanket of heavy snow over the weekend. Much as the snow has framed Lachen in picture-postcard prettiness, it has also snapped connectivity. Owing to the heavy snowfall, the road to Lachen was blocked beyond Bonsai Bridge, about 10KM short of the North Sikkim village, on Sunday morning. People had to commute on foot from the bridge to Lachen till the time of filing this report. [from WANGCHUK BHUTIA]
