Yumthang Valey and Zero Point
Awesome view at yumthang valey with few shops around. Driver will charge extra 2500 for zero point but go for it. you will enjoy snow with amazing view. playing in the snow with amazing view and pictures you can take. Must go place in sikkim. because of worst roads your entire journey will be painful as it takes 7 hours but you will be back home with nice memories

This package will cost you 1500-2000 per head depending upon season. One car is having capacity of 10 person. Either you go on sharing basis or hire a car at 15000.

“Extreme cold but beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2014

We had been there in May 2010. The whole place was covered with snow. Had a fun time with family playing in snow. It is situated close to China border and can be visited by Indian tourists only. You will find various stalls run by the locals serving tea and maggi, which should never be missed. Do carry enough warm clothes because of the low temperature.

“Beautiful place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2014

Nice place for kids to play with snow. Beautiful scenic mountains all around. Be careful with drivers asking more money. There is a board with expected cost, 2500 for non luxury cars and 3000 for Xylo's and innovas, personally feel this is on higher side.
