I have been to other Indian borders, but I must say the experience here was very different, first of all the travel from Gangtok take a long time but the drive is awesome.. you can have a sharing cab booked for this visit, it takes complete day and needs advance booking.. Indo-China border.. You can even get a certificate that... More

Location : about 50 Kms from the town of Gangtok. Nathu La is a pass connecting Sikkim with China (autonomous Tibet region) The road to Nathula pass from Gangtok is via the famous tsongmo (changu) lake. It takes about 2-3 hours to reach the pass by vehicle. The tourist location is right on the border fence between India and China.... More

You have a army run canteen which gives coffee, tea, water, momos and few more things. You can see Chinese army clicking your photos at the border. Thank the Indian soldiers at the border gate and silently come back Photography is prohibited here.

We went to nathu-la on 13th March 2015. Reading the reviews and blogs from different portals, I came to know that sometimes we might not get the permit issued due to heavy snow. But We were so lucky we got a chance to be here. One of the best places I have ever seen in my life. I have never... More

Went for a short trip to Gangtok in February beginning and initially thought of only going to tsomgo lake, due to the insistence of my wife considered Nathula as a place to go. We were fortunate to have got the permit as the weather wasn't great for last few days. And what a trip it was! Snow covered mountains, rough... More

You know you are in Nathula when you are looking down at the clouds and birds. At 14,000 feet it will test your endurance to some extent, but it is definitely worth it. Salute to the Indian army for staying there for such long durations. Some tips for visiting: 1. It is closed on Monday and Tuesday so plan accordingly.... More

Very fortunate that I got the permit to visit nathula pass. I visited the place via shared jeep. Costed me rs 2500 for booking 4 seats in the middle row on bolero. It is highly recommended to book extra seats for comfort. We booked 4 seats for just a couple but it was worth and cheaper than hiring a full... More

You need to get a pass in advance before visiting Nathula. The approaching road is bumpy and also dangerous. There was new road construction going on so could not open the car window as there was lot of white dust. Apart from the approaching road the place is amazing. There is china border so you can see Chinese soldiers. People... More

MUST VISIT..... The winding Gangtok – Nathula Highway is one of the most beautiful mountain roads of the world. Nearly, 70 kms from Gangtok, The sight of the snow capped mountains and snow covered valleys on all sides will make you feel out of the world. At an altitude of 14450 ft, the road to Nathula passes through the azure... More
