Prices are fixed more or less and helps to book them outside of your hotel coz they skim off more commissions off you. The ride itself takes a good 3 hours owing to rough roads..needs... More

What a feeling. One should feel proud of our Soldiers who secure us from hostile neighbors by facing hostile enemy and weather conditions. Visited the place in June 2015. Kudos to Border Road Organization for maintaining roads in such dangerous and difficult terrains.

Visit to Nathula pass requires official permit.

Met Jawans. I salute their friendly approach towards tourists. My wife is a cardia patient and literally carried by Jawans to the top of the hills to border. Photography not allowed at Indo China border.

If you haven't been to nathula then you are missing something , the way is a class by it self but once you reach there then the snow and mountain range is breath taking and added are the Chinese army smiling and ready to talk, it's a nervious felling but nice

Visit to Nathulal Pass is unforgettable and one can not forget in life time . We had planned our visit and while near to the Nathula Pass, there was heavy snowfall. Very enjoyable and we had lot of fun. This is only place where you are so close to Chinese Border. Literally on hand shake distance.

Visiting Nathu La(pass)is an experience which you enjoy in memory than during the visit. The travel to Nathu La is a travel in mystery. After leaving Gangtok, you are shrouded in mist, waterfalls and narrow winding roads through frightening depths on one side and towering heights on the other . The journey is on narrow, winding roads, which you think... More
