Brief About West Sikkim

West Sikkim History
About 35 km from Pemayangtse lays the first capital of Sikkim where the first Chogyal of the kingdom of Sikkim was consecrated in 1641AD by three learned Lamas. The Norbugang Chorten nearby still has the evidence of the consecration ceremony in the form of stone seats and a footprint of the head lama on a stone. The name `Yuksom` means the meeting place of three Lamas. Situated at an altitude of 1780 mt, the place is famous as the starting place for mountaineering expeditions and treks to higher Kanchenjunga ranges

The famous Dubdi monastery is an hour's trek from Yuksom. For trekkers going towards the Kanchenjunga base camp or the Dzongri - Goechala region, this is the place where it all starts.

About 9 km from Yuksom is the 'phamrong' waterfall. A bridge nearby provides excellent glimpse of the waterfall. Yuksom can be approached either from Tashiding or from Pelling. The road from Tashiding passes through dense forests.
