Rezang La is a pass on the south-eastern approach to Chushul
Valley in India
. It is 3,000 yards long and 2,000 yards wide, with an average height of 16,000 feet.
Rezang La was the site of the last stand of the 13 Kumaon, an all-Ahir company, during the Sino-Indian War in 1962. The company led by Major Shaitan Singh, who won a posthumous Param Vir Chakra for his actions. From the Indian point of view, Rezang La had the drawback that an intervening feature blocked artillery operation, so that the Indian infantry had to do without artillery cover.
There is a small memorial at Rezangla
