Yarlam Resort, Sikkim
Location: Lachung, Sikkim
Following the vigorous Teesta River, an adventurous and picturesque drive from Gangtok takes one to Lachung Valley at an altitude of 9,000 ft where Yarlam Resort proposes to make one’s experience even more beautiful with a charming stay at this forested and far-off location. Overlooking the vast alpine valley and bound by snowcapped mountains, the resort consists of 27 deluxe rooms (king or twin) and 3 suites, all well furnished with modern designs. Flaunting a live kitchen, open air seating and an in house bakery, Super Snax is a pure vegetarian restaurant while Guras is a multicuisine restaurant with emphasis on North Indian, Chinese and Continental specialties. Yarlam Resort also has a bar with an extensive selection. Lachung further leads to the gorgeous Yumthang Valley surrounded by an alpine forest of silver fir, and gets even more irresistible in spring when primulas carpet the valley floor along with rhododendrons, primroses and other wild blossoms. Other places like Singba Rhododendron sanctuary, Domang Valley and Yumesamdong or Zero Point leave on speechless with amazing spectacles.
