Welcome to India Mike, Mahendra .

Kids below 5 Yrs of age ( & Sr Citizens above 65 Yrs) are not allowed to go to Gurudongmar. However there is no restriction for Yumthang. Usually Nathula remains open during that time , but if there is heavy snowfall a day before your journey, you may not get the permit from Gangtok. It can't be predicted beforehand. In stead of Gurudongmar you may add two days at Pelling
