Explore the Land of Fairy Tales-Sangla Valley !!
About Sangla Valley Offbeat Tour :
Your discovery of the lesser-known Himalayas can begin at the Sangla Valley. Resting in the lap of mighty Himalayan range nestled at an altitude of 9000ft above the sea-level on the right bank of Baspa river in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh is the most enchanting less-travelled Sangla valley. Baspa Valley (more popularly known as ‘Sangla Valley’) is a nature lover’s delight.
The Sangla, or Baspa, Valley is a deeply carved cleft between burly mountain slopes, where evergreen forests rise to alpine meadows crowned by snowy summits. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful valleys that you would ever have come across in The Himalayas. Villages here feature houses and temples built in traditional Kinnauri timber-and-stone-style. Intoxicating views of snow-clad peaks towering above 6000 meters, cedar and pine forests, apple orchards, and aqua green Baspa river mesmerize you in no time. This trip not only gives you an opportunity to explore the mesmerizing natural beauty of Sangla Valley, but as we move through the villages you also get to interact with natives and get an insight into Kinnauri traditions and lifestyle.
