Awesome Place

Must visit place. At such a height visiting the INDIAN border is a feeling which can't be explained. Seeing Indian soldiers at such place feels proud for every Indian.

The place was amazing fully covered in snow, but unlikely to get same view after May. The place is at very high altitude and eat well before proceeding there, and keep energy bars handy it will be helpful. Tried to get there in Feb but couldn't due to heavy snow.

Its an high altitude military place, you are a meter away from the Chinese military building. People might find it difficult to breathe due to high altitude and the climb to reach on top. Camera/cell phones not allowed, so no photography.

When you are in Sikkim you can't afford to miss visiting the Nathula Pass. A part of the ancient silk route it's now a border post and the trading route is still open. The same route is also used by pilgrims traveling to Kailash Mansarovar. There was some snowfall and we had heard from a few travel agents that the... More
