    LOCATION: On the way to Tsomgo lake + Nathu La. Reached through about 45 minutes journey from city. POINT: This is perhaps Developed and maintained by army as lot many personnel were seen around. Neat and clean premise. Like all other higher sight seeing points, it offers great views from few corners. This place is in the usual list of sight seeing. Good if seen, no worries if missed.
