10. Yadong - Small frontier town

Yadong is located in the southern side of the middle part of the Himalayas and near the borders of Sikkim and Bhutan. The area covers more than 4,000 square kilometers and is 3,000 meters above sea level. Despite its high altitude, its name means "deep valley with rushing water" in Tibetan.

In addition to its lush greens, Yadong has many famous local specialties, such as Yadong fish and barley wine. The main tourist sites of Yadong are Donggar Monastery, Garju Monastery and Kangbu Hotspring.

Yadong is also a major trade port between China and India.
