Yumthang Valley

Yumthang valley, a plateau surrounded by beautiful snow peaks, is a delight to witness. Beware of the rough, treacherous roads that lead to this place. It is popularly known as 'Valley of Flowers' and is home to the Shingba Rhododendron Sanctuary that has over twenty-four species of rhododendrons. The flowering season is from late February to mid June, when countless flowers bloom to carpet the valley in multicolored hues. There is also a hot spring in the valley.

Time taken from Lachung: 2 hrs

Yumesamdong - Zero Point

Yumesamdong is popularly known as Zero Point. One has to stay overnight in Lachung to visit Yumesamdong. The wind is strong and the oxygen content is less because of its high altitude and minimum vegetation. During the last week of December to the first week of April, the whole valley is covered in snow. One can spot yaks and blue sheep that can be seen grazing on the pasture. 

Time taken from Lachung: 3 hrs.
