“Breathtaking !”

Ranked #1 of 5 things to do in Lachung

Attraction details
Reviewed November 18, 2012

Going to zero point gave a feeling like we were at the last outpost of civilization. Only mountains all around us and nobody / nothing else !!! One gets the feeling of how insignificant one is when compared to the majestic mountains.

There is no road beyond zero point. ( Although there is a plan to make a road from Gurudongmar Lake to this point )

It was very chilly and in a few moments lips and fingers had become numb. There was snow here but not as much since we visited in the non-snowing time.

Rarefied air and wonderful scenic views. This is a must see attraction in my opinion.

We went to this place during the end of October 2012. It was an absolutely amazing experience. We enjoyed the snowfall, the breathtaking view of the himalayas, yak rides, and a memorable experience of playing with the snow. Yumesangdong (Zero point) is a must -see. The place is about 15000 ft above sea level and one of the highest motorable roads in India. About a few kms from there, you are in Tibet. It's a very tourist - friendly place and offers snow throughout the year, although it is closed during Dec - Jan as the snow covers the area completely. During Mar -Apr you can find the trees blooming with flowers and extremely beautiful. (I heard you can find around 140 varieties of flowers during that time!!)
Things to note are - It is a high altitude area, and the oxygen levels are quite low, so if you have asthma or any breathing problems, its not very advisable to go there. Be equipped with ample warm clothing, including gloves and something to cover your face too, except your eyes ,of course. And don't forget your rubber boots, which can be hired from there for a nominal fee, else be prepared to bid your precious shoes goodbye coz you cannot walk on the snow with regular shoes.
Overall it's an awesome place to be, you can infact get a Swiss experience right here in India. and maybe better than that.

Amazing place though road conditions are a bit tough. You can enjoy the total journey of Gangtok to zero point because every second a beautiful sight is infront of your eye. Night stay at lachung was very memorable, we had no winter jackets with us, so we hired it for Rs 100/- (jacket, gloves, monkey caps, gumboots) before the journey of zeropoint from Lachung. Keep some medicine, extra battery for camera. The journey from Lahung via yumthang to zero point and yumthang and zero point itself are awesome....Hands-up...No-words....Go there and take the feast of nature's beauty Alok
