We finally reached Gnathang at around 3'o'clock in the afternoon.Gnathang Valley or Nathang Valley is popularly called the "Ladakh of the East India". Situated at the height of 13,000 ft. above the sea level Nathang Valley is one of the most beautiful places in Old-Silk-Route. Surrounded by snow capped hills and mountains the valley is basically an army cantonement. Chinese Watch Towers on Jelep La are clearly visible from Nathang valley in naked eyes. Nathang is the highest location to stay in the Indian part of the Old Silk Route. It is one of the remotest Tibetan habitations in Himalayas. Nathang Valley appears in different colours in different times of the year. In autumn it looks golden when the grass dries up, in rainy season it's covered in flowers and in winter it is buried in 5 feet of snow. Nathang Valley is also visited by migratory birds just before the onset of winter.
