About This Place

The Yumthang Valley or Sikkim Valley of Flowers sanctuary, is a nature sanctuary with river, hot springs, yaks and grazing pasture on rolling meadows surrounded by the Himalayan mountains in the North Sikkim district of Sikkim state in India. The name Yumthang Valley means 'Valley of Flowers'.

Dr. Joseph Hooker in his 'Himalayan Journal' of 1855 mentioned that Lachung and Yumthang are the two most picturesque places in the whole of Sikkim and had even compared them to valleys of Switzerland.

You should plan your visit to Lachung and onward to Yumthang valley and Zero Point from Gangtok. It requires an overnight stay at Lachung before you can return to Gangtok next day.
