Wasn't expecting much on the way to Zero point from Lachung. This place is definitely worth the 3 hours of travel one way. Saw part of road covered with ice, partially frozen river and completely frozen water cascades which made it quite memorable.

When you go to zero point, you would get more than your bargained for along the way there. The scenery is better than what I have experienced in Ladakh I swear. Yumthang Valley is enough you really dont need to go to zero point.

No snow at Zero Point or in the valley at this time. But we could see the snowfall on the way to Zero Point. I have heard that we can see the snow in December or in April / May. For more information please Google.
