100 Places to visit in India
Located in the northern part of Sikkim is the Yumthang Valley. It is a beautiful land where you can often see locals grazing their sheep. Situated at an altitude of about 14,000 feet, the valley is blessed with more than 20 species of beautiful rhododendrons during the summer season. A beautiful stream of river flows through the valley, adding to the charm of the place. While the valley remains closed in the winter months because of heavy snowfall, it is pure delight during the summer months. The best way to reach the valley is to reach Lachung and then take an early morning trip to the valley. Dont risk travelling late in the day, because the sun sets really quickly in this part of the country, and it gets foggy too.
