Planning Gurudongmar lake on October end- is the road opened

Hi,

I' ve planned for Gurudongmar lake on last week of October. Due to flash flood and landslide, the road was closed, as I learnt few weeks back. Is the road open now? Will we be able to visit Gurudongmar lake?

We are planning to visit Gurudongmar lake at the end of JAN. Does the road remains open during that time?

Jan end is not a good time to visit Gurudongmar. The road may not be accessible.

Well, the road to Nathula Pass -Tsomgo Lake is highly unpredictable in January. No need of advance booking for this tour, after arriving Gangtok decide according to the situation.
