On the second day we went towards NATHULA PASS, direction, it's a one day trip for which you need to take permit from the government. The hotel owner organised the cab for that day & the driver took the permits on behalf of us, we just need to submit 2 passport size photographs. The cab driver charged 4k for the trip.
Nathula pass is famous for its indo-china border & beautiful snow covered mountains along the way, located at a height of 14000 feet above the sea level this place is a absolute heaven on earth. This whole region is snow covered almost through out the year.
The second location along this way is the BABA TEMPLE, which has been built in the memories of late Captain "Baba" Harbhajan Singh who was an Indian army soldier. He is revered as the "Hero of Nathula" by soldiers of the Indian army, who built a shrine in his honour. He was accorded the status of saint by believers who refer to him as baba. The temple is locate at a height of around 13000 feet above the sea level. The place also has the world's highest lord shiva statue.
