Yume Samdong is around 26 kilometers from Yumthang, another acclaimed spot in North Sikkim. Yume Samdong of North Sikkim is set at an elevation of 15,300 feet above sea level. Since the spot is in close vicinity to the border standing between India and China, a special license is required to visit Yume Samdong.

Banjhakri falls is a remarkable touristy spot in Sikkim. There is very popular story behind this spot and its name. The word "Banjhakri" means woodland shaman, now if we separate it further "Boycott" implies primitive and "Jhakri" implies shaman.

About Sikkim

I reached NJP station in the morning. There are shared jeeps available from right outside the railway station to reach Sikkim. The route is very scenic but pretty bumpy and it took about 4-5 hours to reach Gangtok. After checking into the hotel, I spent the rest of the day at M.G Marg, and arranging for my tour to North Sikkim.
