Awesome view of Teesta river. Try to go with share. It will cost around 2K INR per head. And don't forget to ask middle seat.

About 140 kms away from Gangtok it is situated.It is a paradise for nature lovers with a marvellous blend of flora and fauna.Hotsprings and breathtaking scenic grandeur.The valley is also the home of Shingbha Rhododendron Sanctuary having 24 species of Rhododendrons.Shivmandir and Yume Samdong,located close by are equally fascinating spots.

Earlier it was very desolate and more charming. Now there are too many small shops selling warm clothes and tea/coffee. Yet a very beautiful valley at an height above 12000 ft.

Yumthang valley is on the way from Lachung to Zero Point and is a must visit if you are visiting Sikkim. The valley is full of flowers during March to June.

Yumthang valley, also known as the valley of flowers, is a beautiful place. A tributary of the Teesta river flows through the valley. One can start early from Lachung, spend some time by the river in the valley and then proceed to Zero Point.
