Definitely make the trip to Tsomgo Lake (Changu Lake) - at an altitude of over 12,000 feet, the trip takes about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. The road is continuosuly winding and the views are nice. Climb the hills overlooking the lake for a really nice view. If possible go to Nathula pass, the border between India and China.

Yumthang Valley, the further north you can go the more stunning Sikkim gets.

Scenery is amazing.

The general tourist goes to Kalimpong,Darjeeling and Gangtok.This takes about 5 - 6 nights.Slightly off beat is Pelling for which you can add another 2 days.And the more adventurous tourist goes to North Sikkim ahead of Gangtok.Places like Lachen,Lachung,Zero Point and Gurudongmar Lake.This stretch needs about 5 days. But in your case the question also arises how many of the places in North Sikkim will be accessible.

Travel Tips for Gangtok

Riding on Yak at Tsomogo Lake!

by goutammitra

This is one great sports activity for the children but adults can also participate in this for Rs.150-200/- ( USD$3-5) at Tsomogo Lake. Yak is mountain cow available in high altitude mountain of India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet as it survives at high altitude only ( 8-9000 Feet plus). A very docile animal which serves as domestic animal, source of meat and transports or beast of burden. The Hindu people of Nepali origin at very high altitude do not eat Yak meat as they consider it as Holy Cow. But people of Buddhist belief of Bhutia, Lepcha, Limbu, Tibetan and other tribe also use it's meat to keep themselves warm and use it's milk to make butter, food for children or tea!

However, at Tsomogo Lake they use it for sports activity and source of earning! One can realy have fun and get at least photographed if not ride on it. This way one can also help the Bhutias to earn their livelihood at Tsomogo Lake.
