Entering the Pass of the Listening Ears - "Natu La". Part of ancient Silk Route, Natu La is the Indo-China border east of Gangtok, Sikkim. You need to take permit for entry one day prior to the visit.
500 m away from the Chinese Flag across the border - the last photography permitted point at Natula Border Post.
Baba Mandir, located 6km from Natula is the memorial for Baba Harbhajan Singh who is believed to help Indian Army even after he laid down his life to the Chinese. Serene and peaceful place to pay homage to the valour of our forces.
Just across the Baba Mandir is this beautiful Shiva statue modelled after Rishikesh - made entirely of fiber glass and placed without harming the ecology of the region. At the backdrop is a beautiful waterfall that adds to the spiritual ambience.
Couldn't resist myself from capturing the wavering Janata Raja right in front of Mahadeva.... Shivaji Maharaj...
Tsomgo Lake is right in between Gangtok and Natula.. A beautiful place to enjoy the Yak ride and Ropeway... The lake freezes in winter... (Don't try to walk over it ;) ) A mesmerising finish to your one day trip from Gangtok.
