A very well and enjoyable place at Sikkim. Good to see the both army (Indian army and Chinese army) at a quite friendship situation. We have also talked to the Chinese army and enjoy the visit very well. But too cold at that place not to take children below 4 years.

Amazing place with historic value, China border a step away from you with beautiful views around. Interesting to see the border covered with rope and fence with individual centers on each side where army of each side meet 8 times every year. Now peaceful since 1967. A must visit while in gangtok with a beautiful drive on the way.

Nathula Pass is the historic route to China from India, it is an International border. View is good, but somebody feels breathing problem due to high altitude. Can be covered by sharing package tour from Gangtok with Tsomgo ( Changu Lake ) and Baba Mandir

As you all know nathula shares the border with China. Being an Indian we should visit this place to know what hardship our armed forces goes through. Journey is fantastic with the scenic roads. Pass is mandatory and you need to apply a day before. Trips to nathula is prohibited on Monday & Tuesday.

This place has very long history and contains geological importance too. it is located on old silk route. you need to take permission to visit this place, so better you arrange it before one day. local travel agent or hotel staff can help you. be prepare with winter wear as temperature is very low.

A gateway to china. The Club -Mahindra travel desk arranged the permit,however we have to inform them 2 days early and fill the information with photos and ID of all the members. Its a one day excursion from Gangtok and it is highly recommended to take/wear Woolen Cloths, as there is sufficient cold at the top/border. A great place to... More
