Sikkim's spring

Prayer Flags, Sikkim

Spring in the northeast is a tempermental thing. The calendars state it's started, but there were faint flurries all afternoon. I have the heat and two layers of fleece + sweaters on.

But in Sikkim...

Gangtok clear and in the 70s.
Which means the passes are clearing, the dzo grazing and the azaleas just beginning to bloom in the Yumthang Valley.

Yumthang Valley, Sikkim

(And I've looked into flights to Calcutta.)
