We visited this place when the winters were just over and summer was setting in...as soon as we reached this place we saw tall mountains staring at us and suddenly you feel humbled... The snow clad trees make the valley even more interesting and the river water flowing in this valley makes you feel this place is taken right out... More

It is an average valley. It has nice views and one can spend some time on the river front. But that's all it has. One should rent long boots to cross river and have more fun. Going beyond Yumthang towards Zero Point is still a journey to remember.

It was the most beautiful place i have ever visited. We were just sitting near there and enjoying its beauty. Words are not enough to describe the beauty of this place. Must visit and experience the same.

Yumthang valley is really very beautiful and picturesque, river Teesta flowing in the middle and both sides are scenic mountains, the weather is chilling, we had hot coffee and wai wai from the local shops.

We found not a single flower when we visited in first week of October. Though still very different experience. Its a vast valley between towering mountains. Some of them are snow clad. Better to visit in april or may

We went to North Sikkim in 3rd week of March. We hired a xylo to travel from Gangtok to Lachung which takes around 7 hours due to the weather and road conditions. The ride is little bumpy but it is all worth it. The 7 hours spent during the ride itself is a sight to see with beautiful valleys and... More
