Nathula Pass (8 Replies)
Is it feasible to go to Tsongmo Lake & Nathula Pass at the end of December.

Tsongmo Lake and Baba Mandir is fine. But accessibility to Nathulla Pass cannot be guaranteed at the end of December. It depends on weather and amount of snowfall, which cannot be predicted as of now. You can decide it after reaching Gangtok based on the current weather.
