The Pass of Listening Ears
Meet-greet the Jawans, get clicked with the Chinese soldiers if you're lucky enough! Accessible from Gangtok, the border area can be visited by only Indian nationals after obtaining a permit of course. Reaching the border involves some climbing up which could be quite an exertion coupled with breathing problems 'cos of the high altitude (14200 ft). Nonetheless, once there, the am-mazing view of the Himalayan peaks on the other side makes up for all the efforts :-)
