  • I love this place , india china border , snow , ice cold air , zig zag roads .. awsome
  • The route from gangtok is amazing with memorable views.You will pass through various lakes, will be able to see yaks, waterfalls etc. You require a pass to visit the place. Taxis charge around 6000 INR. only sikkim regd veh are allowed. Only few places for tea/lunch break enroute. You may feel breathless on top. Any known person in Army will help you to visit the other facilities at the pass along with memento and pics. Must visit. Please don't forget to carry warm clothes.
  • What a beauty...but beware it's the oxygen problem So please some aged people may have very very little problem...otherwise awesome place to see the Chinese border so closely...
  • One of the best place to visit in India. Visited in the month if October and it had 1 degree temp. Make sure you have enough cover when you visit. Only open border between India and China in Sikkim.
  • Being Indian once in life has to see. Our soldiers r great. My tespectful salute to them.Jai hind.
