Glance of Cold Desert!

An Old Mountain calling!

Cold Desert

The untouched in-situ mountains awaited long to be fascinated by humans, as after 53 years of isolation the valley of Nelong is accessed for ramblers. The marooned cold desert, a Nelong Valley is blessed with astonishing locations like Jadung Valley, Janak Taal (wondrous vibrant natural blue lake), Tower Peak, and various ridges and pinnacles that could be witnessed along mighty Himalayas.

The quaint Nelong Valley near the India-China border, which was closed for civilians after the 1962 war, has been opened for tourists. The valley, 45 km ahead of the border, falls under the Gangotri National Park in Uttarkashi district.

“Six vehicles will carry tourists from Bhairavghati to Nelong every day, but no one will be allowed to stay overnight within the 25-km area between Bhairavghati and Nelong”. A permit letter from the sub-divisional magistrate is required to visit the area while entry of foreigners is banned.

At 11,600 feet, the valley is a cold desert, home to the snow leopard and the Himalayan blue sheep and offering a view of the Tibetan Plateau. Sightseers visiting the valley will see the wooden bridge once used for trade between India and China.
