Nathang Valley is located along the Old Silk Route in east Sikkim. Situated at an altitude of 13,500 feet above sea-level, the valley has also been referred to as “Ladakh of the East”.
The valley changes its color according to seasons. It is dressed in golden in autumn due to the drying up of the grass. Snow clad in winter, it is strikingly white in color. Spring however, is the best time as a blanket of wild flowers covers the valley, dressing it up in vibrant hues of color. There is snowfall during winters. Nathang Valley has a host of beautiful lakes you can see. There is a small Buddhist Monastery which is a popular tourist attraction. The valley is surrounded by the Himalayan Mountains with meandering streams cutting across it. The vast stretch of grassland is far away from the city landscape. The mountains are perfect for trekking as well.
