This place is amazing as we can find snowfall which is amazing ! The lake is very clean and Yak rides and eating maggie in cold weather was fun. The only minus point is no oxygen arrangements by govt and very costly vehicle fares. Also the system of passes is very confusing and we are left at mercy of travel... More

Book a car a day before or even the same day early morning. A SUV should take around 2000 for the entire trip. Road Conditions are very good being a sensitive border area. Due to the height and high winds, the place can become bitterly cold even before Winter sets in, so carry heavy woolens. Take some time to know... More

A must visit destination near Gangtok. The view of surrounding barren mountains is just awesome but the bad thing is vehicle pass system, which is sold in black as only limited passes are issued by Army. Some mechanism must be worked out to stop this black marketing of Nathu-La passes.

This place is heaven. White snow blanket covers everything around. View on the Chinese side is amazing. Landscape is totally mesmerizing. Just one army managed food outlet serves hot Maggi noodles and tea. Washroom facility is not up-to the mark considering the number of tourists. Must carry some warm jackets even if you go in summers. Also carry Water Bottle.

Certainly takes place in list to do before i die. Try visiting when it snows. plan for 2/3 days stay because you might not get a permit when the roads are closed

The journey is quite rough due to the climate variations, totally worth it once you are there .A sense of Pride engulfs you with awesome views. Do leave as early as possible so you get more time to spend there .

This place will heighten your sense of pride towards our great nation and its army Armymen guard this Indo China border in adverse weather conditions round the year Recently this pass has been opened as an alternate route for Mansarovar yatra You can actually stand on the border but not allowed to take any cameras etc there. Chinese soldiers are... More
