Gangtok: Sikkim Governor Shriniwas Patil undertook a three-day tour of North Sikkim from 20-22 August.
A press release issued by the state government said that Patil visited Lachen Monastery, offered prayers and met the Lamas.
He met the Pipons and locals at PWD Guest house in Lachen where the Pipons said that allowing passage to tourists via the alternate route of Donkiala pass towards Gurudongmar would affect the livelihood of people of Lachen since tourism is the only source of income for the locals, the release said.
