6. Nathula PassWhen it comes to the highest motorable roads in the world, this one in India is the highest at roughly 4300 meters. The Chumbi valley of Tibet is easily noticeable from Nathula Pass, which serves as the entry point for the border between China and India. Numerous people go through this route each year to hear the waterfall's lyrical sounds as it cascades into Sikkim's waterways. This location's name is derived from two Tibetan words, "Nathu" and "La," which mean "Listening Ears" and "Pass," respectively. It offers a snow-covered mountain beneath the clear blue sky and the lengthy, winding roadways. Being at a high altitude, this location frequently experiences cold weather and is crowded with tourists in the summer.
Nathula pass and Changu/ Tsomgo lakeThe day I'll never forget in this lifetime! I had pre-booked my Nathula and Changu lake trip with a group tour and I'm so glad the turn of events and multiple change of itinerary of this group tour lead to me joining this trip on this day. Nathula, as most of you know, is at the border of India & China. The drive to this place is crazy to say the least and even dangerous during winter time. We were lucky enough to have scheduled this just a week in advance. The week after we went there, it was shut due to heavy snowfall and around 100 people were stuck there and had to be rescued by the soldiers there. Pure respect to the soldiers who thrive in such conditions. Thankfully, the day we went, sun showered us with its blessings and we were able to complete this trip without any issues.
