It takes about 6-8 hours journey to reach Lachung-which serves as the base to Yumthang and Yumesamdong or zero point. The journey can be tiresome but enroute are many spots like Singhik View point, Seven Sisters Water falls. It would be wonderful to spend a day at Lachung itself devouring the beautiful, small village nestled in the hills.
Yumthang is famous for the Shingba Rhododendron Sanctuary and is to be visited in Spring to witness the bloom of about 24 varieties of Rhododendron, we could though see a couple of varieties.
Its nice to spend some time in the freezing water of the river which joins the Teesta down stream.
After spending some time here on the river side - one is given the option to travel to Yumesamdong or the Zero Point at a distance of 25 Kms. Perched at a height of around 16000 Ft and close to China border, this is would probably top the most magnificent locations, I have seen. Snow clad mountains all around, snow melting into the river- It was an exhilarating experience
