“Amazing drive”
Reviewed April 13, 2013

Visited on 9 th April,2013. Rhodenderons hadn't bloomed but worth every minute spent while on the way to Yumthang/Zero Point. Stopped to click pictures of yaks grazing. Really nice place. I wish i had walked and not driven through this place.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Nice place to visit. One can not find the flowers before April end. As we visited in the march end we found the natural beauty but without the flowers.

“Paradise”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

I went mid-May. It was breathtakingly beautiful. Soft mist, and the countryside was lit up in myriad hues of the rhododendron flowers in full bloom. Very rich in bird life. I would be scared to tell too many people about it, for fear of ruining this paradise.

“Wrong time of the year”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

I am told I should have gone in May. All I saw was bushes and trees and snow. I am told it rivals even amsterdam and belgium in the colourful carpet when they are in full bloom
