Ladakh, the Nelong Valley of Uttarakhand [Everything you want to know about the visit]

The Belong Valley is located in the desert mountains of Uttarakhand, very close to the border between India and Tibet. Neilang Valley, also known as Neilang Valley. In 2015, Ladakh, Uttarakhand, was closed to the outside world since the India-China War in 1962 and opened to domestic tourists. Nelong is a beautiful place, very similar to Tibet, with towering peaks and landscapes similar to Lahar, Spiti and leh ladakh road trip. Since the valley is an important strategic location in Gangotri National Park, visitors cannot stay overnight. This rule applies to Bhairavghati and Nelong within 25 kilometers.

 About Neilong Valley

 I think Neilong Valley is an amazing, delicate and unspoiled area in the Uttarkashi district. It is located at an altitude of 11,400 meters. It’s a quaint charm that complements endangered wild animals like the Himalayan blue sheep, snow leopard, and musk deer. Besides this, this place will definitely be loved by adventurous travelers and those unseen and untouched.

 Some people say that Neilong has been translated into blue stone. The valley has a historic landscape, just like Reagan’s Ladakh honeymoon package, you can imagine the rich natural beauty of the area. The region contains the remains of the tragic trade route between Indochina. The old infrastructure still remains, including the Lal Devta temple and Garstang Galion. Heinrich Haller is also believed to have escaped to Tibet through this valley. What is the additional advantage? The Qinghai-Tibet Plateau is amazing. Given that the region has been isolated from the rest of the world for the past 6 years, it is regrettable that the region has lost all its culture and heritage because it is neither protected nor recorded. The government has made the right efforts, but has strict instructions to open the valley to tourists. The goal now should be to gradually increase the business so as to develop business in the local community!

 War and the Neilong Valley

 The Neilong Valley was an important trade route between Tibet and India long before China occupied Tibet. In fact, if you have ever been here, you will be shocked by the similarities between the valley and Tibet. The cold mountain deserts of LahaulSpiti and Ladakh are also common in these parallel zones. Neilong Valley also has the same rich history and culture as those valleys that are about to disappear in political turmoil and border conflicts. During the Indochina War in 1962, the village that formed the Neilong Valley was emptied by endless military camps. Unfortunately, the border tensions are so high that only 25 kilometers of tourists are allowed in the restricted area. Although there are no modern and documented (public) records of the cultural relics, ruins and ancient buildings in Neilong Valley, local residents and local councilors are willing and able to share a lot of information. When you are in the area, don’t forget to talk deeply with people.


 Neilong Valley is located on an ancient India-Tibet highway. After the 1962 war, the Rongba people of Neilong Valley were forced to enter the Bagori residents of Uttarkashi District, Uttarakhand. Neilong is called “Bhotiyas” Neilong Valley. After the local residents evacuated the scene, the village was controlled by the Indian-Tibet Border Police (ITBP). Remains of the old trade route can still be found, including important narrow wooden bridges across the canyon.

 Weather in Neilong Valley

The weather in the valley is really cold! The highest temperature in winter is between –5 degrees and –10 degrees, and the lowest temperature is around 15 degrees. The highest temperament does not exceed 510 degrees Celsius, even in summer, the lowest night is always negative!

 Best time to visit Neilong Valley

From May to November, Neilong Valley is still open, so you can plan your itinerary accordingly. The best weather is in September and October. It is also when the monsoon is coming down from North India. The safest option is to head to the area after the notorious and difficult Uttarakhand moonlight breeze. However, travel carefully after lunar rains to ensure maximum safety.

 Neilong Valley Visitor Guide

 Since the valley was opened to the public in 2015, the number of tourists who can visit has been strictly guided. To get a permit, you must first be an Indian citizen. Second, when the valley is open, there is the highest quota of visitors per day. has the guidelines of the Ministry of Forestry, prohibiting personal vehicles from entering the area, and only 6 vehicles of the Ministry of Forestry can enter the valley with 4 people every day.

 Now you need permission from SDM to track all of these (District Magistrates). You must also hold a health certificate that clearly shows that your physical condition is suitable for travel. The permit is a somewhat hexagonal process for Neilonggu. I recommend keeping a 23-day deposit in your permit schedule. Let me pass through you! Keep your permission and let your life be with you!
