Very Pretty place

One thing that strikes you about Yuksom is the fresh air, the prettiness and cleanliness of the place. The route to Yuksom goes through some very pretty villages and one can the organic foods being grown.

One of the cleanliest lake I have seen

It was indeed a paisa vasool destination, we enjoyed the calm place. It is said that the lake is so clean because the birds around the lake do not allow a single leaf also to get dropped in the lake, and yes we did not spot a single thing fallen in the lake. It was a nice place, overall the atmosphere around was really positive.

The trip to the Queen of Ranges

Visit Yuksum which completely mesmerized me with its beauty. It has a beautiful lake and the stay in the village is amazing. This place open up trek routes to the Kanchenjunga range and you can have some serene time up in this mountainous village.

Good but don't visit if its raining

Its a nice small town or rather village which can be visited but avoid if it is raining. We were unfortunate to be there when it was cloudy and raining. Trekking routes start from this place. Attractions are the lake, view of the mountains, the small village & the coronation throne.
