Near Lachung helipad, a small but worth visiting handicraft centre is worth visiting. Take some time off and head to this handicraft centre which has exquisitely woven rugs and blankets. Lachung has varieties of local made handicraft and handloom.

Blanket made from yak and sheep wool, carpet, shawl, hand bags are some handloom produced at Lachung. Beside this wood craft of Buddhist sign and symbols (lucky signs) are also available at the Handicraft centre. It also sells sea buck thorn tea.

Weaving of carpets and blankets has been an age old practice of the Lachungpas. Many households still have their own looms where they make carpets and blankets for their own use. In the earlier days the entire process from making dyes, to dying the wool to making the thread was done at home but nowadays they used synthetic yarn to make carpet.
