Another name for this gorgeous place is THE VALLEY OF FLOWERS. It is tucked into the Himalayas about 150 kms. away from GANGTOK, the capital of Sikkim. Present at a jaw-dropping altitude of 3,500 mtrs. , it has about 25 species of RHODODENDRON flower!
Every spring, the valley gets covered under a sheet of blooming flowers of Poppies, Primulas, Iris, Rhododendrons, Tulips, etc. thus presenting a riot of colors in front of the watcher’s eyes!
It takes about 2hours to reach here from LACHUNG, the nearest village and the place is closed down in December to reopen in March owing to heavy snowfall. The sheer beauty of flower-laden mountain surfaces can make you skip a beat or two!
