    Description :

    In the morning drive to Yuksam via a beautiful valley. On the way you will find dense forest, lush green meadows, waterfalls and much more. Upon arrival at Yuksam set out camp for Dinner and overnight stay.

    Yuksam is the base of West Sikkim's most popular trekking region, Dzongri and is also of historical importance to the Sikkimese. Yuksam literally means 'meeting place of the three lamas'. In the beginning of seventeenth century a rift between different factions of Buddhist sects in Tibet forced the Red Hat Sect to seek refuge in Sikkim. Lama Lhatsun Chempo, on his journey to Sikkim, arrived at Norbugang in Yuksam, where he met two other lamas, Sempa Chempo and Rinzing Chempo and began converting the people into their faith.

    Sacred texts had revealed that the ruler designate of Sikkim would be a man named Phuntsog of Gangtok, so the lamas sent an envoy in search of him. The party returned with Phuntsog Namgyal, whose ancestry could be traced to the legendary prince Guru Tashi, founder of the Kingdom of Miyang in the Chumbi Valley. In 1641 Phuntsog Namgyal was crowned as Sikkim's first king, the Chogyal.

    Day 5 : Yuksam - Bakkhim (16 kms/5-6 hrs) (3005 mts/9856 ft)

    Description :

    We walk gently uphill, following the Rathong River's gorge, through dense mixed jungle with magnolia, rhododendron, ferns and several varieties of orchids, brightly colored birds, and the occasional monkey. After an hour or so we cross the Paha Khola bridge, (1,733 mts /5685 ft). There is a swimming spot by a waterfall (for those who dare!) after two hours, and we can stop for lunch by a bridge over stream.

    Passing by sweet melling viburnum we cross the Prek Chu River and then ascend steeply for two or three hours to arrive at the lodge at Bakhim. We will either stay in the Tourist Hostel, or sleep in our tents. This hostel is often occupied by Himalayan Mountain Institute students on rock-climbing courses. This is a long trekking day and you should expect to be pretty tired by the time you arrive at Bakkhim.

    Dinner and overnight stay at the camp.
