Yumthang Valley, Lachung Reviews
Just awesome. I visited here in last week on December. Temperature at that time in morning was around zero degree or may be slight less and in day time around 12 it was 3 degrees. The river flowing with the magnificent view of mountains will make your day. If you are visiting sikkim, this is a must visit place. Do not miss it.
One of the most beautiful places on earth.. awesome place.. the cold wind the trees.. the high mountains creates a majestic display of beauty even on off seasons... must visit..
Yumthang is located around 1 and half hour drive from Lachung. It's on every tourist's agenda in North Sikkim, so it can get somewhat crowded during peak season; the idea is to reach here as early as possible to avoid the rush and enjoy the beauty and serenity of this place. The valley is very wide and runs deep into the mountains - you can see yak and other cattle grazing here and there on the meadow that's covered with fresh grass and tiny purple flowers. On both sides of the valley are tall snow-covered mountains. Beautiful like in a postcard. If you are in season, you can also get fresh snow fall. There are a lot of shops here that sell variety of food, clothes and other thing. Some also rent things like jackets, gum-boots, gloves etc for the trip to Zero Point. There're a few activities as well like zorbing and zip-lining. While climbing towards Zero Point, you get bigger and more spectacular views of the whole valley. When we were there, it had snowed previous night, so while climbing everything was white but while coming back everything has green because the snow had melted. Amazing.
It was really a wonderful experience.We stayed in lachung and headed for yumthang and zero point the next day.The best time to travel to yumthang is April-May coz you get to see beautiful little purple flowers ....Yumthang is known as the valley of flowers ..lovely place
It's a heaven!! Very similar to the scenery that we used to draw during our childhood, two mountains, river in between with few huts.
