Lush green grass. Yaks grazing. River flowing by & cool breeze to blow you away. Just the perfect place to be at on a relaxing holiday. If you plan during May 1st to May 15th you would also be treated with an delightful scene of colorful flowers painting the scenery all across.

The place was damn cold and covered with snow. I visited in december 2014. We couldn't go beyond a point due to frozen road. We made our way to the river walking knee deep in snow. Absolutely mesmerizing place would visit again and again.

When we visited Yumthang valley on 14 May 2015 morning, it was raining and flowers on the valley grounds were almost washed away. View also was obstructed with clouds & mist. Hence, could not really witness the beauty that this valley is famous for.

Yumthang valley is absolutely gorgeous. The view of the valley surrounded by snow capped peaks is mesmerizing. It is a photographers paradise. The rhododendrons bloom around April-May is a sight to behold. The blooms are supposed to be in April but rains can delay it to May. Well worth the long drive to get to North Sikkim. Rock slides in... More

I went there in the last week of March, and went upto Yumthang, very beautiful place seems its like very close to heaven, breath taking view of snow clad mountains. But one thing is that I felt sorry for the nature because I saw huge dams are being constructed, cutting of trees, blasting dynamite, diverting the Teesta river on the... More

Anyone will have very high expectation abt Yumthang and its reviews and especially after going thru the rough roads. U may be disheartened if u have visited other places of India. Rhododendron beauty is only around 2nd week of May. In April end there were enough flowers but by 2nd week of May it comes to full bloom. Pls refer... More

The area has a river flowing by which one can stop by but the place is also a spread with rhododendrons of different colours. The area is absolutely wonderful with an artifical lake which was created due to a landslide...try to spend at least an hour or two exploring the place..

This is very nice place and if you visit from April to June can see the valley with all flowering rhododendron flowers. This is not so easy to reach place need lot of journey by hill roads. One can enjoy the whole journey from Gangtok to Lachung for stay and from Lachung to Yumthong valley which will take from 2... More

I was here with my wife in May 2015. Yumthang valley will be on the route to Zero point from Lachung. If you are not going to zero point then you can visit Yumthang valley and return back. This place is full of flora and fauna. During my visit there was a little flower bed, however locals say that by... More
