Go on a beautiful yet exciting drive to Nathula Pass
Nathula Pass is a year-round destination nestled away in the rough alpine terrains of Sikkim, in spite of all its grandeur and breathtaking beauty all around. Everyone loves to view the frozen Nathula Pass during the winter, when this well-known Sikkim tourist destination is covered in a thick layer of snow and appears utterly strange. However, the massive Nathula Pass in Sikkim experiences some sort of magical transformation during the monsoon, and the surrounding area turns absurdly lush, vivid, and fresh.
Sikkim’s south and west are said to be the best locations for a beautiful monsoon holiday. However, a trip to Tsomgo Lake and Nathula Pass might be among the most exciting things you can do in Sikkim during the monsoon season.
Because of landslides and accidents caused by the heavy rain, it is often not advised for tourists to visit this region of the nation during the monsoon, but we say, give it a shot! Naturally, with caution.
Experience Chopta Valley’s riot of colour
The ideal recreation of heaven is found at Chopta Valley in Lachen. Drive time from Gangtok to the unique valley, which is positioned at 4023 metres, is 7-8 hours.
