The Beautiful Yumthang Valley

We started from Pune , India reached Kolkatta and then to Jalpaiguri. From there headed towards Gangtok(East Sikkim) which is capital city of Sikkim. very beautiful and clean city.

The MG Road of Gangtok is the best place to spent the evening in Gangtok , there are many shops on the Road.

Spent the Night in "Live and Loud" cafe, amazing place, nice music, nice food.

From Gangtok we headed towards North Sikkim i.e Lachung, reached there in evening , it was freezing cold over there (-8 degree) , stayed there overnight then on next day morning headed towards Yumthang valley , zero point. 13400 feet above the sea level , the roads were curvy, covered in snow, breathtaking view of the valley , this is the view which no one would like to miss.

In evening headed back to Gangtok , stayed there overnight and did local sight seeing next day and headed towards Namchi (South Sikkim). Very stunning view of the Temi Tea garden, very scenic views from the roads.

From there headed towards Darjeeling from Gangtok. i have never seen more curvy roads than this.Saw the famous zoo of Darjeeling , saw Kanchenjunga mountain from Darjeeling and then headed back to Pune

In all it was a one of the most amazing trips till date, Sikkim is very beautiful and clean state with breathtaking scenic views.

Everyone must visit Sikkim Atleast once. I am going to visit in Again as missed three important places i.e Gurundhambar lake , changu lake and Nathula pass due to Heavy snowfall.

The capital of sikkim , beautiful city , with beautiful MG Road
Snow covered Yumthang valley , breath taking view , freezing cold
Scenic Temi Tea garden , Chaar Dhaam temple on the top of the mountain
Curvy road from Gantok to daarjeeling , foogy road , freezing cold
