Chinese border is literally at a hand's distance. Very low oxygen and low temperatures with speedy winds can make physical activity difficult. Salute to Indian army!! November usually doesn't have snow enroute. The road to Nathula is the best in Sikkim which otherwise are a pain. I am sure the views will be great post snowfall.

The place is extremely cold at 14600 ft and a must visit to see the Indo-China Border post. Be wary about the cold and the elevation as it can cause problems. There are 60-80 stairs to reach to top. Don't expect snow. Only in Jan - March.

This is awsome feeling at Nathula, as if we are above the clouds. Changu lake is so good, but travelling here is quite expensive and tired.
