Jalebi Road (on old silk route)

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


A beautiful sharply winding road leading to Zuluk/Kupup in East Sikkim bordering Bhutan/Tibet. Unending layers of blue mountains, with snow peaks playing hide-n-seek with the clouds, and the road lying like a sleeping python in the lap of the virgin forests. A treat to the eyes. Permit is given from Rongli. Otherwise military route (well kept by BRO naturally), with no hustle-bustle of tourists even in season.
