Photographer's Note

The true beauty of the Tibetan Highlands can be experienced at Tukla Valley. Located at an altitude of around 12500 feet above sea level, Tukla Valley in Sikkim offers a majestic panoramic view of Mt. Kanchenjungha and its allied peaks.

A war memorial was built in memory of the British soldiers who fell at the Battle of Tukla. The Tukla Valley is covered in snow during winter and in September-October, the whole valley becomes red due to the growth of a local flowers. Tukla Valley is around 16 kms from Kupup Lake. The Jelepla Pass is also located nearby.
