yak in Yumthang valley

yak in Yumthang valley
Originally uploaded by xtremepeaks
Northern Sikkim, near the Tibet border, a valley at 12,000 ft full of yaks and rhododendron forests, blooming in the spring.
Hiking in the valley and forests, to snowy slopes and across the bridge to a small house with a hot springs pool inside. A heavenly place!

Hiking to the hot springs, with arrangements and permits obtained through Saga Renjyong Tours and Travel (Gangtok), their excellent service is highly recommended.
