Several India and China soldiers headed to an intense face-off along the border of the two countries in north Sikkim on Saturday, Hindustan Times reported attributing two senior officials on the condition of anonymity.

It was reported that the scuffle between the two forces took place near the Naku La pass (ahead of Muguthang), at a height over 5,000 metres above sea level.
