Another picturesque place in North Sikkim, Yumthang Valley boasts of its thick rhododendron forests and hot sulphur springs. The valley is the home to 24 species of Rhododendrons, thus it rightly earns its name as ‘Valley of Flowers’. The vasts meadows and the passing of River Teesta through it, makes Yumthang Valley a nature lovers’ paradise.

A lovely picturesque valley with a river flowing by and snow capped peaks in the background. Best to visit at the time when flowers bloom.
