Why is Yumesamdong called the Zero point?

Yumesamdong or Zero point in the northern part of Sikkim stands at an altitude of 15,300 feet above mean sea level and is the last outpost of civilisation. The road ends here!

The drive from Yumthang Valley to Zero point is through the curving mountainous amidst rugged landscape and is a lifetime experience that should not be missed.

Owing to the close proximity to the Indo-China Border, foreign tourists are not allowed to visit this place in Sikkim. However, Indian nationals can visit this stunning place after acquiring a Protected Area Permit from the District Administrative Centre at Mangaon, at the Sub-Divisional Magistrate Office, or at the Gangtok Tourism Office.
