'Sikkim' Tour - Nathang Valley

Continuing from ... Sikkim tour #1

The best thing I experienced in my Sikkim birding tour with Goingwild was snow fall in 'Nathang Valley'.

On the 3rd day of our trip, we traveled to 13,500 feet to this paradise. I wasn't expecting snow at all and was I quite afraid of the cold. Yet when I saw and experienced it, I was like a kid getting excited to see my first ever snow fall :-) I was so so happy. I bought a woolen cap and hired snow boots. Yet it was super cold and at night it fell to minus degrees. We did some day time birding and night landscape photography too. It such an awesome feeling :-) 
As it wasn't a fruitful place for birding because of the snowfall, we stayed the night and left for Zuluk the next day.

I was just too happy ! :-) Just sank in that feeling!





Snow started from here... Thambi View point :) Here a panoramic view to Mt. Kanchenjungha is visible, but snow and fog made it impossible that day. Read here.
