Yuksom Tourism & Travel Guide

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.

Then we went to Kathok lake. Kathok lake is a beautiful and serene lake in Yuksom (West Sikkim) where one can spend endless hours in the quietude of nature.We spent few time there and then left for the famous Dubdi monastery.Dubdi monastery is often addressed as Yuksom Monastery; it has an elaborate painted interior area. Images of divinities, saints, other symbols and collection of manuscripts are exhibited in the monastery. You have to do little bit of trek about 3kms to reach here.The monastery has got some beautiful landscape view. We spent some quality time there and enthralled by the beauty of the nature.
