A part of the Gangotri National Park, the valley is now opened in daytime for about six vehicles carrying six people in a vehicle.
After the aggression from China in 1962, Bhutiya villagers were rehabilitated to Dunda and other locations in Uttarkashi and army posts were set up in villages on the border. But now, after more than 50 years, adventure enthusiast can get a chance to enjoy the beauty of the valley and get glimpses of exotic wildlife such as Himalayan blue sheep and snow leopards etc.
An important point for cross-border traders pre-war, Nelang valley still has structures which are related to the old trade route. Gartang Galion, a wooden bridge and the Lal Devta temple are such points in the area which fall on the route for Tibet.
