The drive is awesome, especially if its in May/June with the Rhododendron season. Skip momos/noodles and ask for local food that the shop keepers eat and you'll be pleasantly surprised!! We had heavenly egg curry in local greens and lentil with rice. The valley is mesmerizing surrounded by tall snow capped mountains and the Teesta river on one side. You'll... More

Such a wonderful location!!! Makes you wonder why our film industry would visit places like Switzerland to film those songs... A colorful valley of flowers and clear flowing water surrounded by snow-capped mountain tops on all sides. Wonderful place to take those sweeping panoramas and 360 degree Google Sphere photos. One can't look at any place standing here and not... More

We visited Yumthang this year january.It was fully covered with snow. The view was spectacular. I have no words to put it down. One can not believe it unless he/she experience it. This is the best part of sikkim tourism. Anyone planning for sikkim tourism sould never miss Yumthang Valley.

great place, peaceful as well. Best for those you want to cut them self from crowed & noise. Take care of 2 things, one the approach road is closed normally 6-8 months in year. take that info in advance, second the hotels have limited options make booking in advance,

Yumthang valley is one of the major tourist attractions in North Sikkim. As the Lonely Planet says : "this picturesque valley widens and flattens, the scenery slowly transforms into a montage of jagged peaks, lush pastures and bridges draped with colourful prayer flags." As we were there in the morning, it was covered with a layer of snow, looking dazzling... More

My friends and I went to Yumthang, tour with Galaxy Tours and Treks and we really got to see the real view of Yumthang (mini Switzerland). Galaxy gave us the insider view of the North Sikkim and took us to other amazing sites in the District that one just can't go to alone as a tourist. GALAXY TOURS AND TREKS... More
