From lachen , we left to lachung where we had to stay for the night.
The next day morning we left to Zero point , which is at an altitude of 15000 ft. It took us 2.5 hours to reach this place , the zigzag roads which was one of the silk routes to India from Tibet was amazing . we could see the Tibetan mountain peaks from this point. Its the last point were civilian's are allowed . It was very cold though the sun was out and shinning. The landscape was marvelous with a tiny stream flowing down the valley.
There are several tents here offering food and coffee , a special Rum coffee is offered here. On the way back we visited Yumthang valley . we can see flowers blooming all over the region here ( during may- August ) it was dry when we visited. There is a hot water spring near this valley. They have created a small pool inside a room.
Plastic water bottles are strictly not allowed in North sikkim , if any one see you using Plastic bottles , they could fine you 5000 rs. No flower Should be plucked , especially the Sikkim sundari. Its a non bailable offense and Rs 1 lakh is imposed as fine.
No urinating in public ( 3000 Rs fine)
This district has the Raja system , which has given the power to public, who can fine you if you break the laws here. Isn't it wonderful .
After relaxing in the hot pool for an hour , we left to gangtok straight. its around 5-6 hours journey and 1/3rd of the roads are not in a good condition.
I finished touring North sikkim with beautiful landscape images in my mobile. such a beauty 😍 must visit once in a lifetime.
The next day i Wanted to see the kanchenjunga peak glowing like gold , in pelling. But.... #comingup #sikkimadventures #sikkim #northsikkim #lachung #yumthungvalley #shaanesikkim #travel #instablog #himalayas #tibet #shotononeplus6 #oneplus6 #oneplus #triptocommunity
