For snow in the month of June, you should visit Zero point, North Sikkim or Nathula pass. Chances to see snow in June are not very high.
I am visiting Gangtok on 29 th April. I would reach there by evening .30 April being sunday , we would like to visit Nathula Passon 30th itself as Mon and Tuesday it will remain closed. Seeking your advice on getting advance permit for the same as personally on 29 th April it would be difficult for me as I am travelling for south India with Indirect fights and it would be quite tiresome.
You can try to get the permit on 29th evening. Try to get help from Tour agents at MG road, Gangtok.

Thanks a lot for your help
April is best time for traveling to Sikkim. I think one day will go in Gangtok sightseeing and one day in Nathula pass tour. For the remaining one day, you might try to visit Pelling if your schedule permits.
Hi I'm planning gangtok, nathula pass and changu Lake in April from 23rd to 26.. I have 1.5yrs old kid with me, is it advisable to take infant to such altitude and weather. Pl confirm.. We are about to book our tickets
nathula not advised with a 1.5yr old kid ,but if your kid is all good and healthy shouldnt be a problem for him/her..consult your physician once
We are planning to reach Bagdogra on 2nd April(sunday).Nathula will be closed on monday and Tuesday.I want to know the availability of shared vehicle to Tsomgo lake on Monday n Tuesday. and how much time shared vehicle guy allow to roam around there.
We are planning to travel to North Sikkim on 5th April.Will Gurudonmar will be open on 6th April.
Kindly guide me.
shared vehicle time in tsongmo lake will be around 45 minutes and in baba mandir will be 30 mins..As of this week neither tsongmo,gurudongmar lkake or yumhang valley iis accessible...lets hope for the best when youre visiting..the weather should improve by then
I am reaching Bagdogra at 3 PM on 19th April and have return on 23rd apr from Bagdogra at 3 pm. I have below questions :
1. Planning to do Changu lake and Nathula on 20th April. Is it possible to get permit considering I am reaching Gangtok on 19th night only.
2. Is it somehow possible to cover Changu lake, Yumthang and Gurudongmar in this schedule. Ready to skip Nathula for that possibility.
Thanks in advance for your help on above.
nathula permits have to be procured through a sikkim local travel agent one day prior so its advised you make a advance booking for the same.
if you want to visit gurudongmar and yumthang you can skip nathula and changu lake.
I want to enquire about whether we can visit nathula pass on mondays,tuesday,as my holidays are from march 13,14 and 15.And please do send some tour operator numbers as i want to visit nathula pass and pelling that too in shared basis.
So, Kindly can you inform about this.
Thanks and Regards,
Nathula pass will be closed on mondays and tuesdays.you'll have to visit it on the 15th.
Thanks for adding your inputs. these are highly valuable
sir we are a family of four .we are planning to visit gangtok and nathula pass in last week of march. my daughter is 10 year old is it advisable to take her to such high altitudes? where shoul i get the permits needed? we are planning to stay for six days .can you please suggest us the best route and plces we can cover in the limited time..since with kids we need to take stops very often..... thank you..
I do not think Nathula would be a problem for 10 years old but still i would suggest to assess yourself. Every kid is different. I would suggest few days in Gangtok. You can also plan a 2 day trip to Lachung, Lachen in North Sikkim.
Can you please help me plan my trip as i will be arriving in bagdogra on 5th April and leaving on 11th April.I want to cover lachung,gangtok,kalimpong Major places visit is :
Tsomgmo lake, Baba Mandira and Nathula Yumthang and Zero point Gurudongmar ,Tiger Hill .
Can You please create itenary for this with 3 star hotels.
Thanks and Regards
I think 6 days would be little hectic to visit all the places you mentioned. I would suggest to skip Tiger Hill/Darjeeling and visit Gangtok, Lachung, Lachen, Baba Mandir, Yumthang, Gurudongmar lake.
I will send an email which might help in arranging tour/hotel/taxi etc
Can u pls send me the same itinery.. I am also planning for a 6 days trip with my familyof 4 in last week of may

With respect Taxi and hotel, I can send email with some numbers which might be useful. I am not aware of the latest taxi rate from Bagdogra to Gangtok.
I have scheduled my trip to Darjeeling-Gangtok-Lachen-Lachung (Yumathang/Zeropoint)-Zuluk from 25th Feb 2017, can you please let me know how good are the changes that the roads would be open for these places?
Generally road till Yumthang is open but you might not reach Zero point in February due to heavy snow

I think it will be difficult considering snow on the road. Permission can also be tricky. Only Sikkim registered vehicles are allowed in this stretch
