We learnt it had snowed a day back, We were greeted with beautiful views of snow amongst dark boulders & foggy skies on the drive. The roads were uneven & were being done up in some stretches. The border with China... More

The title of my review says it. Couldn't get any better. I mean we witnessed a hailstorm and heavy snowfall in march which was worse than during the winter season. It was just amazing. There were frozen lakes on the way and what not. For more than one I felt as if I would not be able to go back.... More

If you are in Sikkim, Pls pls don't miss this. It is in the midst of nature and also makes us feel so proud to see how our Indian army works relentlessly in such tough terrain and environment. Nathula is closed on Mondays & Tuesdays, so plan accordingly. It is a great trip

Nathula Pass was on the must visit on our list of things to do at Gangtok. Though its not very far, but it takes really long to reach as the road is winding with many hairpin bends, not to mention the landslides. We were lucky to be visiting at an off-season time, and yet it was a little crowded (I... More

The experience was thrilling and adventurous. The scenic beauty is really very fascinating and amazing... You can meet our Indian Soldiers, shake hands or ask for info about the place. Though photography is prohibited there, you can click some secretly. The wind blows at very high speed and is very very chilling. So carry all warm clothes, covering ears and... More

This has to be one of the most beautiful places in India. The views on the way are amazing and the experience of being on the China border with both armies face to face is something I will not forget in a long time.
