We visited this place in the month of May 2008 and found it amazingly beautiful.
We started in the morning from Gangtok, the capital of Sikkim, by a hired Taxi and reached same day by evening. The journey itself to this place is very pleasant as the entire route is dotted with milky waterfalls, pristine forests and unparalleled beauty. Although journey on the rough roads was not comfortable, we were petal fresh at the end of it and the moment we landed at our Hotel Silver Green Resorts, we moved out to enjoy the snow clad mountains and murmuring river Teesta. The Hotel is situated on the banks of the river and faces snow clad peaks. Next day we went to Yumthang, better known as Valley of Flowers and Hot Springs and were got the most pleasant surprise of our life by seeing the Hot water coming out of the snow clad mountain- a confluence of two opposites and a marvel of nature. The hot springs are used by locals and tourists for bathing and the water of the springs contain medicinal properties which can cure skin diseases. Beautiful flowers blooms all around during this time of the year and the entire valley appears to be carpeted with vibrant colours.
Overall I would rate this place as exellent.
