A fact checking is beneficial.Chinese forces lack the toughness and experience to fight in the 18,000 feet mountain peaks at the LAC. Those qualities can't be replaced with machinery and technology. To be honest, Pakistan has got rather more experience in mountain warfare than China. An ongoing conflict with India where both countries suffer regular casualties for decades has troops psychologically ready for a hot war in short notice. In 1962, ill prepared and heavily outnumbered Indian troops faced Chinese veteran of Korean war in NEFA and Ladakh.
This time around, things are very different in terms of troop

Don't know if the Indian troops were "ill prepared " ( which itself is an anathema for any armed forces),
In the Sino-Indian conflict India had a "forward " policy and engaged in massive build up of 100s of thousands of troops and heavy equipment which had been in progress for months. India was as well prepared as it could be for the worst. Matters didn't turnout as well as it was hoped. It's not the first time an adversary is underestimated.
The Indo-China war, that began on 20 October 1962, saw a month-long standoff between approximately 10,000-20,000 Indian troops and 80,000 Chinese troops. The war ended on 21 November, 54 years ago, after China declared a ceasefire. Amid the barrage of information available on the war, here are a few things about the war that you might not be aware of.
The PLA is not in the business of waiting for you to get ready. It is in the business of winning wars, as you will soon find.PLA never start war when enemy is prepared. War will not happen as Indian army is well prepared. As soon as disengagement reached and India lowers guard with trust. PLA will try again same drama.
Live fire exercises are very important. I don't see India doing any due to ammunition shortages. Let's see what happens when the real war starts. They always brag before the war starts, and then complain when they lose.Indian military can't even afford to fire missiles, artillery, and tanks, etc. They can't even calibrate their weapons .
You seem to know a lot about military but when it comes to Indian's nuclear capability I think you way overestimate the Indians. Remember India only has nuclear fission bombs from the 50s at best. The Chinese thermonuclear test in 1967 has a higher yield than the total of all Indian fission bombs.Fighting a war with India will be much easier than with Taiwan. For one thing, you are not separated by a 100 mile Taiwan strait, which is already huge. And plus, there is really no threat to the Chinese ground forces, which number roughly 800,000 to 900,000 troops, so basically the entirety of the Army could be brought against you guys. Besides, saying the Indian Army is prepared is almost as funny as saying India has enough toilets for its population. You guys have less than 10 days worth of ammunition stockpiled, which is why the IA has virtually zero live fire drills (I'd be surprised if you guys even shot straight in combat). The only thing stopping you from having to learn Chinese is that China has tens of billions of dollars worth of investments in India and worries about the nuclear arsenal of India.
