The world is too much beautiful, you can realize while are on the way to Yumthang. We traveled to North Sikkim from Gangtok on 2010, it was an unusual 1 day trip, normally people goes and stays at least 1 night, but unfortunately we could not stay due to visa validity of few members. However, i must visit there again... More

I visited during the off season, which means i missed the snowcapped peaks , but since we were the only tourists present in the amazing sorrounding, peacefulness and solitariness made up for everything that we missed. Still I have not yet struck this place... More

Yumthang Valley is beautiful in December with fresh snow all around, though spring is top favourite season to be there. Be prepared to leave early as roads are bad and there can be traffic snarls due to heavy snowing. Read more about what to do and what not to do in my blog www.joyfultravelpie.com

The drive from Gangtok to lachung is beautiful. Greenery everywhere. The roads were rough due to off season. It was raining and there were landslides. However, the adventure ride was worth it.

The road to North sikkim from Gangtok is not good and becomes risky after the rainy season. But once you overcome the thoughts of these; you will see soemthing which you will feel its worthy to take the risk. The view of these place will vary based on the season of the trip. If you go during May and June... More

The journey from Gangtok to Lachung is a long one with roads not upto the mark. But the scenery on the way is awesome and makes the journey worthwhile. Yumthang valley is the main attraction at LAchung and it exceeds expectations
