I hope you had good trip. Yes, even with flowers and snow, Yumthang is worth a visit.

Please let me know whether

Please let me know whether any restriction in entry at Nathula Pass, Gurudongmar Lake, Yumthang & Zero Point for aged person around 65-70 yrs. and child of age 5-6 yrs. are there or they may enter if physically permitted. Your valued information would enable me to plan my family tour to east & north sikkim at the end of September 2017. Is it the right time to visit east & north sikkim or else west sikkim is the best option?Waiting for experts opinion to decide.

Yes, September is really good

Yes, September is really good time to visit Sikkim. Weather will be pleasant. Army checkpost before Nathula pass and Gurudongmar lake does not allow kids (below 5) to go further due to problems which might come due to AMS. Similarly I think there is restriction for old age people.

Hi Kunal, Going to Nathula

Hi Kunal,

Going to Nathula with 1 year old kid is not a good idea. its quite high altitude. I do not think Army check post before Nathula pass would allow you. As for Pelling and Ravangla, its all fine.

+- Vishnu

Dear Mr. Kunal, Visiting

Dear Mr. Kunal,

Visiting Nathula Pass is an awesome  thrilling experience for all . But as on today Nathula Pass temperature is 0-3 degree celcius. During your visit it is expected that 

the Temperature will float from 1 to 4 degree whicch will be too cold for the newly born baby and all kids . More over there is also a risk of breathing problem in case of babies and infants some times for adults also  in high altitude of 14140 feet at Nathula.Therefore there is a caution warning for childeren and babies issued by Govt and Army.

You can see many interesting seight seeing places around Gangtok which you will enjoy more alongwith your children and wife.Apart from this Darjeeling is also very good place for staying amidst the nature and you can view lot of sight seeing places in Darjeeling alongwith riding Toy Train which will travel through mountains. You can view Mount Kanchendonga from Batasia loop at Darjeeling.

Thanks
