|Yumthang Valley (24 Kms from Lachung)|
|Set at an elevation of 3575 meters above sea level, the Yumthang Valley is Sikkim’s undisputed natural paradise that is easily accessible via road. (There are of course many more areas in Sikkim that surpass Yumthang’s scenic grandeur, but these remain off the beaten track.) In the summertime the attractive scenery of this area reaches its zenith when an immense variety of alpine flora of cascade the meadows, hills and the valleys.
Through out the way you will find snow covered trees and falling snow from branches giving beautiful view and experience. Carry one video camera to this scenic place.
There is a hot spring in this snow covered area. You need to cross Lachung river to reach the hot spring. Don't try to exhaust yourself too much here as oxygen level in air is less because of height.
