Hi Vishnu .. me n my husband

Hi Vishnu .. me n my husband are visiting Gangtok on 28 Jan next year and would want to go to Changu lake. Which hotel do you suggest in Gangtok ?? Should be near the taxi stand and not too expensive. Secondly, will the people at the hotel help out for the permit and what are the expenses? Finally what is the tentative chances of weather causing road blocks while travelling to Changu at that time of the year ?? Your suggestions seem really helpful.

Dear Aditi, gangtok has a

Dear Aditi,

gangtok has a wide range of hotels...

i would suggest sonam delek ,karsonam or summit ttakshang..

No.. you can not obtain by hand. its better to contact any tour agent in the evening and they will get it prepared. I am not sure which department is directly responsible for it and can make it for you on spot. Permit is also required for Changu lake and its the same permit.

Chances are really high. your best bet would be changu lake, Nathula pass and Yumthang. For Lachung, you will have to book taxi from Gangtok.

Hi, I will be reaching

Hi, I will be reaching Gangtok on 23rd December 2016 with my wife and two kids aged 5 and 10. Is it advisable to go to Nathu La with the 5 year old kid? Can we get permits for 25th? I also want to go to north sikkim ( La chung, Lachen etc.). Will there be any problem? What will be the road conditions in December? How does one arrange for the trip to Nathula and north sikkim from Gangtok? 

 

25th December is sunday so

25th December is sunday so should not be a problem to get permit for Nathula pass. i do not think there is any problem visiting with 5 year old however keep in mind it will be freezing cold and altitude is really high. Roads will be bad if there is snow. I will send you an email which can help you planning the trip from Gangtok.

Hello, I am planning to visit

Hello,

I am planning to visit Gangtok, Nathula, Zuluk from 2nd Dec, 2016 to 8th Dec, 2016. Can you guide me, where will i get snow?

I am interested in snowfall and coolest nature. Can you please guide me for the same?

First week of December is not

First week of December is not the best time to see snow but still i would suggest you to try nathula pass. Nathula will be the coolest among what you picked.

Sir, I am planning to come to

Sir,

I am planning to come to sikkim in second week of march 2017(12-03-17 to 15-03-17) is it possible to see snow in changu lake,nathula pass and Yumthum.

Yes. it is possible. Chances

Yes. it is possible. Chances are very very high.

We are planning to visit

We are planning to visit nathu la pass from gangtok via changu lake and baba mandir on 8th march 2017. 

Can we gey sharing vehicle for nathu la pass? How much does it costs to book exclusive vehicle? What are the procedures to get permit on our own? 

Yes, you can get sharing

Yes, you can get sharing vehicle to Nathula pass. i think it is somewhere around 800 INR per person. for exclusive vehicle it should 12 times more. you can contact Sikkim tourism department at MG road for permit if you want to try on your own.

We are planning to go in

We are planning to go in Gangtok , changu lake & nathula pass in the month of November 24th with my 3yrs old baby can it possible to go nathula &changu?

I would not suggest to go to Nathula pass with 3 year old. I believe army checkout before nathula pass will not allow you to visit with baby however Changu lake should not be a problem.
