About Yak Ride

We’ve all heard about riding a horse or a camel or an elephant, how about riding a Yak this time? Sounds super exciting, isn't it? Well if you are in Gangtok, you should definitely try out this activity. Get an exclusive opportunity to ride this docile animal of the hills. At Tsomgo Lake, this sport has been practised for years. The locals out there earn their livelihood through this activity, and the tourists enjoy a completely different experience. Though yak riding is usually arranged for children, but, the adults can even sign up for the same. If not comfortable doing that, one can at least have some good clicks with the humongous creatures of the mountains.

Pro Tip: The activity mentioned here is for an individual.

Highlights

  • Cost Category Value for Money
