Sangla Valley

Surrounded by the Himalayas from all sides, and the Baspa river gently flowing below, Sangla valley in Kinnaur is a breathtaking sight to behold. One of the less explored gems of the Himalayas, the valley leaves you speechless with its spectacular sights.

A small town with hotels and local shops around, the valley breathes with a life and culture of its own. Close to the Indo-Tibetan Border, it leads to the famous village of Chitkul, the last inhabited Indian village. The forested slopes below the snow harbour exquisite autumn-leafed trees and large green pines.

This region is home to the best quality apples around the world, as the Sangla town boasts of many bustling apple orchards. It also hosts major tourist destinations like the Kamru Fort and the Sangla Buddhist Monastery.
