Staggering scenery. Good views of early rhododenrons and early primulas but too snowy at Yumthang for alpine flowers. There had been a massive landslide just before we arrived which completely filled across the valley. We felt vey humbled by the sheer force of nature but fascinating to see it. Fortunatley the road had been reinstated it be prepared to be... More

This is the ultimate destination of nature lovers for its pristine grandeur & breathtaking views. Lonely Planet says: “this picturesque valley widens & flattens, the scenery slowly transforms into a montage of jagged snowy peaks, fluttering prayer flags, lush green pastures& snow covered pine trees”. This amazing plateau is unexploited & unexplored valley tucked between snow-capped peaks & pine forests.... More

Yumthang is a place to visit during April if you want to see the valley covered with rhododendrons, if snow then it's the early winters. Feels like heaven on earth even though am a localite from Gangtok, it always amazes me. A must place to visit.

If you are a snow lover, good time to visit is early March else late April would be really beautiful. This time of the year, the valley is full of flowers.

This valley is not as picturesque as I hoped it would be. Maybe this was because we went a week before the flowers were in full bloom. Its best to be here either when it completely covered in snow or when the flowers are in full bloom

Excellent valley, perhaps one of the most beautiful places in India. This was my third visit, but that did not take away anything from the natural beauty of the place. I visited on April 10, 2015 and found that the rhododendrons had just started blooming. Need another 15 -20 days to see the valley in a riot of colours. on... More

On 8th it Rained in Lachung and snowed in Yumthung - so next morning it was great view. Had to return 6 km short of Zero Point. Singba Rhododendron Sanctuary is almost completely destroyed by a massive landslide - making roads to Yumthang pretty rough. But great trip.
