~ Awesome Yumthang ~
At an elevation of 11,800 feet and some 140km from Gangtok, the valley and plains of Yumthang is truly spectacular with its breathtaking beauty and scenic grandeur. Also known as Valley of Flowers, it becomes magical during summer months. A tributary of the river Teesta flows gently past the valley and the town of Lachung, the nearest inhabited centre. Spending some time here is truly out of the world!
