Nathula Pass Reviews
Nathula Pass, Sikkim Dec 07, 2008
Sikkim. The most wonderful hill place I have been to :)
The great weather, the great people, the great sights and sounds, the great everything!
One must see place at Sikkim is Nathula Pass - the check post of India and China - the two most developing countries in the world !!
One has to obtain permission from someone in Gangtok to go there as it is a heavy militarized area. Any travel agent would do that for you and arrange a car to take you there as well.
The journey is wonderful and you soon enter snow filled areas (depending on the time of the year you go).
Changul lake (a frozen lake) lies on the way about which I will write later, time permitting.
Nathula Pass is at a height of 15000 feet plus! Its cold like hell (which is funny cause hell is supposed to be full of fire and heat etc :P)
Across the border one can see China, the Chinese soldiers (who seem to be 17-18 year old kids) and a lot of empty terrain. A restaurant serves hot wonderful tea and its a great break from the cold!!!
Nathula Pass has one of the most amazing feelings, a great view, and a place to remember !
