After receiving our entry passes in the morning, our driver took us to Nathula Pass via Tsomgo lake. The weather was cold. We had to walk for ten minutes to climb some stairs. Due to less oxygen in the air, we used camphor and went slowly. We could see Chinese soldiers and workers on the other side. Also saw passing... More

It was snow all over the place. China border can be seen from this place. Very restricted army place. You have to keep your original documents id proof with you to enter this place.

Scenic border between India and China. Photography is not allowed here. You can see Chinese army very closely. You may face some breathing problem. So carry some water, chocolate and popcorn to reduce the health problem also take rest to overcome it. Visitors are not allowed in Monday & Tuesday. So plan your trip accordingly.

It is not worth going there and paying so much for this. A long time of travel, but there is not much to have a look, one can't click pics. Bagha Border is great.

A real breathtaking experience visiting this place, which needs permit from Indian Army by submitting 2 photos and an ID proof a day before the visit. A crucial boarder with China is a must visit place. Will certainly feel thrill to see the international boarder at a touching distance. The gates of both sides will open only for trade and... More

I can not explain the beauty of this place in words. This is must visit place in sikkim. Nathula is the border between china and India. So please don't try to capture any picture or video of this place, army men can take your camera from you or give you any other punishment. All the time Army men watch from... More

If you are travelling to Gangtok, do not miss to visit Nathula Pass. The drive to the pass is fantastic . The views are breathtaking. Photography is prohibited at the pass, which is manned by the Indian Army. Hats off to those brave souls who protect our borders in such an inhospitable terrain and weather.

I travelled to this place way back in 2004 with my friends, but could not prevent myself from writing about it as it still remains my favourite destination till date. The entire trip from Gangtok to Nathula Pass is adventure & full for breathtaking, awesome views. Must visit for all.
