The Tsongo Lake is a sight to behold. We can see the mountains in the backdrop which also had some snow on it. A picture on the Yak which is decked with multi colored accessories completes the trip.

Yes you can. But it depends on the snowfall. Sometimes the road is blocked due to snowfall.

No waiting space available in Changu lake area, even proper food is not available. With small children to spend time in this area is not advisable. Moreover return trip to Nathula pass may take more than 3 hours.
