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

Everything! It is like the scenery in which one side we draw water/river and hills on the other! You will not like to leave the place and can spend hours there. The drive is also very very beautiful..Snow here and there, absolute bliss it is! Do visit if you plan Sikkim.
