Devalgarh is a significant part of Uttarakhand’s history and Maa Raj Rajeshwari Temple was built by King Ajay Pal in the Year 1512. The temple is known to attract a large number of devotees who come here to seek blessings from the Goddess and get their wishes granted by her. (A mythological yet strong belief)
It is also significant from the Archaeological point of view - being a wonder perched at ~4000m, containing secret passage ways inside the structure which were built under the King in his time and also showcases exquisite ancient Garhwali architecture that once adorns this beautiful town.
Moreover, a large festival/fair is organized here during the harvest season, which puts Uttarakhand’s native culture on the forefront.
With a Ladakh like landscape, Nelong Valley is not only rich with natural beauty but also houses remnants of the treacherous Indo-China trade route, whereas Gartang Gali is a 105m long skywalk situated at an altitude of 11000 ft above sea level and was also once, a part of the Indo-Tibetan trade route.
Post the Indo-China war in 1962, the bridge was declared off limits and the valley too has left the modern-world tourists in curiosity of its story. NOW, this skywalk will be opened for tourists after 55 years and has a grand potential to be developed into a adventurous gem.
The picturesque valley also, in totality holds a tremendous potential to be developed into a niche tourism destination which would attract thousands of tourists and nature enthusiasts. This site will also be intriguing for a wider demographic since the Austrian mountaineers, Heinrich Harrer (Tutor to the young Dalai Lama) and Peter Aufschnaiter are associated with Gartang (They were imprisoned by the British), who after escaping imprisonment, captured the story of this region in their famous book, “Seven Years in Tibet”.
