This lush valley, located at an elevation of 13,500 feet, was home to traditional yak herders from Tibet. The valley is befuddled by a scarcity of streams, and prayer flags ripple on the mountain borders of this vast plain. Nathang Valley appears in a variety of colors at various times of the year. When the grass is removed, it is dazzling; in the stormy season. It is enveloped in blossoms. In the winter, it is buried in 5 feet of snow. Chilling wind waves are sweeping all around here. This settlement is part of the Old Silk Road, which connected India and China.
Nathang Valley, a Hindu temple and a small Buddhist monastery in the valley on the outskirts of a small town, has a rich history. The Battle of Nathang is regarded as a pivotal event in the British conquest of Tibet. The British had dispatched a military expedition to remove Tibetan rulers from Sikkim in the middle of 1888. The Tibetans attacked the British defenses at Nathang Valley at 07:00 AM on May 21, 1888. The combat lasted around three hours, and the Tibetans retreated at 10:00 a.m. You may now visit the memorial park for the British men who died in this battle at Nathang Valley.
Nathang is known as the Ladakh of East Sikkim. Nathang Valley, sometimes known privately as Gnathang Valley, is located at a height of 12,700 feet above sea level. Nathang town is one of the most distant Tibetan settlements in the Eastern Himalaya.
