Tholung valley in North Sikkim is the home of the ethnic Lepcha people of Sikkim. And it is now a protected area. The Lepchas live in small villages amongst the densely forested slopes high above the Tholung valley. The Tholung monastery houses many relics and antiques collected from other monasteries for safekeeping. Many of these relics are displayed on a special day every three years. The trek up this beautifully forested valley leads to the higher alpine valleys. Here you will get a chance to see yaks grazing below the snow-capped mountains of the Kanchenjunga range.
