Nathula (14,150ft) is amongst the three trading border posts connecting China and India, the other two being Shipkila (Himachal Pradesh) and Lipulekh (Uttarakhand). Nathula (Pass of Listening Ears) and the adjoining Jelep La (Silent Pass) passes aren’t only important as they served as a link on the Silk Route between Gangtok and Kalimpong in India and Yatung in Tibet but also became famous when the British Expeditionary Force under Young Husband passed through them. This portion of the Silk Route, thereafter, is known as the Young Husband trail. The route was used by His Holiness the Dalai Lama when he visited India in 1956.

Nathula opened on 6 July 2006. The road of Nathula is surprisingly, one of the highest motorable roads in India. Nathula is only 56 km away from Gangt + more about Nathula
