Home to a variety of flowering plants including, of course the Rhododendron, the sanctuary makes an excellent trek in Sikkim.
Although, the abundance of Rhododendron is what makes this sanctuary quite attractive, there are also other features like the Yumthang River that flows through the reserve, the alpine meadows and the existence of variety of birds that add more charm to the reserve.
