Jadh Ganga

Nelang is a small hilly village in Uttarkashi District, Uttarakhand, India, and claimed by Zanda County, Ngari Prefecture, Tibet, China. Jadh Ganga, an important tributary of the Bhagirathi River, flows through this place. Some of the nearby villages are Jadhang, Sang and Pulam Sumda, which all lie in the valley of the Jadh Ganga.

Territory dispute[edit]

The valley of the Jadh Ganga is claimed by China;[1] however, contrary to the claim, it has been controlled by India since the dawn of the British colonial era.
