Yumthang Valley, Lachung

4.4
#1 of 6 in Things to do in Lachung
Observe the clear blue sky with a Himalayan backdrop as you walk through the flower-filled Yumthang Valley. Hike through the valley on mild-difficulty trails and appreciate the natural scenery, untouched by man. Only a single permanent structure sits in the valley: the forest rest lodge. In the spring and summer, a range of endemic flowers bloom, bringing color throughout the valley and giving the attraction its nickname: "the Valley of Flowers." In the winter months, you can go skiing in the area. Plan to see Yumthang Valley and other attractions that appeal to you using our Lachung trip planner .
