About Yuksom

Charming and unspoilt, Yuksom is a Himalayan land with maple, birch and magnolia trees and an array of monasteries. This East Sikkim village is also the gateway to Mount Kanchenjunga and is a worthy addition to the eco-tourism villages. The Dubdi Monastery is said to be the oldest of its kind in the whole of Sikkim, perched on a hilltop. An hour's trek from the village will take you to this beautiful place wrapped in greenery and peace. The Kartok Gompa and the Ngadak Chenpo Chorling Gompa are the other monasteries that offer an insight into Tibetan culture. Yuksom is also the base for several treks, the most famous ones being Goechala and Dzongri. There is nothing much to do after sunset but to watch and enjoy the silence of nature. Try the yak cheese momos – a local delicacy, and wash them down with Hit and Dansberg, two local brands of beer. For accommodation, choose a cozy Tibetan homestay over anything else.
