Even though the roads are long and treacherous...at times even highly risky, its a must go. You just cannot miss being proud of our soldiers...there are some restrictions like not being allowed to take pictures, but we understand. After all, if the pictures get on Internet, our Bunkers, Soldier's positions etc will be all in open. It was good to... More

We can see brave soldiers guarding Indo-China border in inhospitable conditions. The view from this place is awesome. It was very windy and weather changed rapidly as we were about to leave. We need to visit this... More

Brilliant view for the mountains, INDO-CHINA boarder view. Go there if you don't have breath problem because there you have to walk and climb mountain, supply of the oxygen is low as compared at the Gangtok city. Take some camphor for good breath.

We had opportunity to visit this place. Visited in September 2014 in midst of rains. Although tough approaching the place in monsoon, the adventure was worth. The complete travel was pleasure. The clouds kissing you throughout the journey that also had Tsangu lake enroute. And then Nathula was visual treat. The china border - just an inch away from the... More

I must say you have to be lucky to visit Nathula pass, coz during the season it does snow badly and the pass is closed for visitors..... It's a place where we have a fine line between India and China.... A must visit place in Sikkim.... But please take care of your health as the oxygen levels are very low...... More
