Zero Point (Yumesamdong)Yumthang, Lachung, Sikkim, India
Situated at an altitude of 15,300 ft. above Mean Sea Level, Yumesamdong or Zero point is nature personified. It is a place very close to the Indo Chinese border. This place is generally not part of the standard itinerary, but is often merged with the itinerary of Yumthang Valley as an add-on. An hour's drive beyond Yumthang (26 kms), takes one to Yumesamdong. The way leading to Yumesamdong is a passage through natural grandeur filled with the delicate scent of Azalea flowers pervading the atmosphere.
Yumesamdong is a land of perennial snow but this valley is also used as a grazing ground for nomadic shepherds. Heady, invigorating and exhilarating, words would fail to explain the experience of being at Yumesamdong.
