It is one of the best place to visit during your vacation. spent your time with nature. people of Nathang is so respectful caring and loving, and I suggest your stay with Phuntsok's Family at Nathang Residency, the best place in whole Sikkim and silk route I would say whole India.

Snow everywhere!!! That cold breeze is awesome. Must visit this place if you go to Sikkim.
