|Beautiful Sikkim: Yamthung Valley|
1. Drive Through Zuluk Loops East Sikkim
The famous silk route that connected Lhasa (Tibet) to Kalimpong was in use even a few decades ago until the Chinese invasion in Tibet.
Today it is fast emerging as a new tourist destination in East Sikkim.
During the summer months, the area and its surrounding hills are covered with thousands of blooming rhododendron.
The lovely Zuluk Loop, Gnathang Valley, Padamchen, Kupup Memencho Lake, the Silk Route bends, Kanchanzongha at Thambi, snowfall on the road, old & new Baba Mandir, Sherathang and Tsomgo (Changu) Lake are must-visits.
This is a place which you would visit for the beauty of the mountain and the forests rather than going for typical sightseeing tours. A few kilometers drive would take the tourists through a winding road to the Thambi
2. Visit The Gurudongmar Lake North Sikkim
