Yumthang is a scenic valley situated at an altitude of 11,800 kms amidst the mountains of north Sikkim and just at a distance of 135 kms ( approx. 5 hrs.) from the city of Gangtok. Nurtured by the rhododendrons and... more plenty of unknown trees of various species, it can always be a small excusrion to the garden of heaven.The base of Yumthang valley is the picturesque hamlet called Lachung , located at 25 kms from Yumthang. On the way you can always stop for photoshoots at the Seven sisters cascade and the Lachung Monastery.With the night halt at Lachung, the next morning starts with a drive to Yumthang as the orchids ans rhododendrons accompany you to the garden of heaven. The flowers are in full bloom in April- May but winters also provide a spectacular view of the snow covered mountains. Once in Yumthang, the first halt is at Zero Point( the end point of the national highway in Gangtok), where all roads come to an end and the paradise begins. It also houses innumerable rivulets  which feed river Teesta. While coming back,  suggested is to take a dip in the holy hot springs of Yumthang famous for their curative measures. By afternoon start receding the Yumthang valley and begin the return drive to Gangtok.Tips : There are innumerable 1-2 nights all inclusive Yumthang valley packages operated by various travel agencies in Gangtok. You just need to bargain while booking one of those tours. The safari Ex- Gangtok is in a restricted area of natural vegetation, hence it requires a permit. Usually the travel agencies get it for you, but be sure to check the permit before booking the package. April- May usually promises colourful flowers but winters are generally snowy. Lachung is a hamlet and does not have facilities of high catagory properties. This excursion is not suggested to pregnant women for rought terrains .
