Hi Rajeev

North sikkim is not suggested in january.Weather in north sikkim is very unpredictable,in january it will be too cold and snow,roads can be blocked any time due to snow fall.Its better to visit gangtok ,west sikkim and south sikkim in january.

Well, i know that road might be blocked. We are okay with the cold. we have gears to fight with cold, so not problem with that. We want to see lots of snow, that's the reason we are planing in this season.

As on today, Lachen, Lachung are accessible, enough snow is there, but Gurudongmar is not accessible.

Tsomgo Lake is the nearest point of Gangtok to get snow, if accessible.
