You can expect some snow on the way. You cannot see any flowers during off season. Better to add zero point in your trip to lachung.

The valley is popular for flowers, but the time I have visited there was end of winter. Due to snowfall, I have found the valley was fully covered with snow. The weather was nice and I was spellbound by observing the beauty of the valley. This may be one of the preferable times to visit north Sikkim as well if... More

This valley is really lucrative and beautiful in springs, when colorful wild flowers blossoms. In Other Season it is just a valley.

I visited this place in January. The roads to this place may not always be open in Winters, because of snowfall. But when they are, this is definitely a must go place. Like all other places in North Sikkim, you have to book a package with a local tour operator to go here. During Winters, if the roads are snow... More

A must visit place. You will be able to see a variety of rhododendron flowers in the month of april and may. All along the valley flows a river which adds more to the beauty of this place.

Its quite difficult to reach this place as you have to travel long way in hilly roads from Gangtok to Lachung 100+ Kms and some 25+ kms from lachung. Its advisable to stay in Lachung for a day and the morning visit to this valley will make you forget all the stress of travel and gives most beautiful view of... More
