TRAVEL IN YUKSOM SHOW MAP

Yuksom , the first capital of Sikkim, means the meeting of three great lamas. These lamas came from Tibet and established the Nyingmapa order of Tibetan Buddhism. According to the historical records, the first Chogyal of the Kingdom of Sikkim was consecrated in the 1641 AD by three learned lamas. The evidence of the consecration ceremony is still intact in Norbugang Chorten in the form of stone seats and a foot prints of the Head Lama on the stone. Since the history of Sikkim began from this place, these areas are now considered sacred by the people of Sikkim.

Yuksom is also the entry point of the Khangchendzonga National Park. Yuksom is the base camp for various trekkers and the mountain climbing course organized by the Himalayan Mountaineering Institute.
