  • The valley blooms in spring. It enjoys a temperate climate.
  • Chumbi valley in Tibet at the intersection of India (Sikkim), Bhutan and China (Tibet) in the Himalayas. It is very narrow. China stationed its military in this area is seen as tense zone. The valley is named after plant Pedicularis chumbica which grows there. Formed by the passage of the Amo (Torsa) River. Two main passes between India and China open up here:
  • a) Nathu La Pass Nathu La pass that connects Tibet with Sikkim.
  • b) Jelep La Pass – between India(sikkim) & Tibet. The Menmecho Lake lies below the Jelep La Pass.
  • India trains the Bhutanese army through the Indian Military Training Team (IMTRAT), in Bhutan.
