Best Things To Do in Yuksom

Surrounded by the snow-clad Himalayas on all sides, the small Sikkimese town of Yuksom can be perfectly described in only one word- peaceful. History and culture have come together to create an atmosphere of harmony and well-being that pervades the town, and the energetic activities of its inhabitants contrast pleasantly with the calm leisure that greets tourists. Yuksom is a special town- as the first capital of Sikkim, it is actually the birthplace of the values that define the state. A royal historical past has today given way to a culture rich in Buddhist philosophies which strive to strike a balance between humans and nature. It is hardly a commercial tourist hill-station- the close-knit community is primarily made up of local residents with the occasional hotel set up for tourists. Its unspoilt beauty is the best part about stepping into this small town- no hawkers selling cheap souvenirs, no pell-mell crowds, no obtrusive resorts. All you will find in Yuksom is a happy and hearty town full of the zest for life, seeped in a silence only punctuated by the distant peal of gongs and the chirping of birds and crickets. Tourists who wish to get away from the bustling cities and want a retreat into absolute quiet, will find all their desires satisfied with the best things to do in Yuksom.

There are many beautiful ancient Buddhist monasteries around the town, and some fantastic natural parks nearby. Hiking all around the lush green mountains is a wonderful activity to undertake when vacationing in the town since the best of Sikkim can be experienced only when you are in the midst of its untamed beauty. You can also go to the monasteries and interact with the monks or engage in deep meditation in the silent chambers. The locals of Yuksom are pleasant and hospitable, so you will find that you feel more like a resident than a tourist when you are here. Take a look at some of the best things to do in Yuksom on your vacation here.
