The valley is popular for flowers, but the time I have visited there was end of winter. Due to snowfall, I have found the valley was fully covered with snow. The weather was nice and I was spellbound by observing the beauty of the valley. This may be one of the preferable times to visit north Sikkim as well if... More

This valley is really lucrative and beautiful in springs, when colorful wild flowers blossoms. In Other Season it is just a valley.

A must visit place. You will be able to see a variety of rhododendron flowers in the month of april and may. All along the valley flows a river which adds more to the beauty of this place.

Its quite difficult to reach this place as you have to travel long way in hilly roads from Gangtok to Lachung 100+ Kms and some 25+ kms from lachung. Its advisable to stay in Lachung for a day and the morning visit to this valley will make you forget all the stress of travel and gives most beautiful view of... More
