Gelling is the last village in India attached to the International Boundary of China, by the road on the Kapang- La border. The famous Mac Mohan Line touches this region. The village Gelling is almost 34 kilometers away which is around one and a half-hour ride from Tuting town in Upper Siang District of Arunachal Pradesh in India which lies at an altitude of around 4000 feet. Tuting is a charming little town surrounded by dense forests and mountains, at a distance of close to 300 km from district headquarters Yingkiyong in the Upper Siang district in Arunachal Pradesh. River Tsangpo enters here from Tibet and is locally named Tsang Chu, which is further named river Siang in the South and Bramhaputra in Assam. Hike to Dampo Tso Lake, The Sibe-Re waterfall are the main attraction of this village. To reach Gelling one needs to hire a cab from Tuting though shared sumo or similar kind of vehicles are available in the morning which operates between Tuting and Gelling and the same vehicle returns back from Gelling to Tuting. There is no other transportation available for the rest of the day from Gelling so it is advisable to hire a cab from Tuting. If visitors want to stay overnight then they can stay in a small village Norbuling which lies to the east of Gelling and it is 20 minutes walk from Gelling. There is an inspection bungalow run by the state government which is available for accommodation and food for the tourists and travelers alike. Since Gelling is the last village and there is a lot of internets and network problem but the BSNL signal works fairly well and there is a good presence of the Indian army in and around. There is a helipad and a small monastery is perched at the top of this village.
