This place is on the way towards zero point. Awesome view. Roads are pathetic and drivers might charge extra for the zero point. Weather is chilled and windy during this season.

All along the routes, one can spot rhododendrons, in higher density in the sanctuary. A must for flora enthusiast. Seasonal so timings must be key in mind to see the bloom.

The Sanctuary is beautiful - a must visit in North Sikkim when the flowers are in bloom! You get to see a landslide site and a river-lake on the way to the Yumthang valley. The valley is eye-riveting.

This is on the way to Zero Point. Even if you do not stop by, you can feast on colorful Rhododendron shrubs (also the state flower of Sikkim). Must for photography buffs!
