Charang has its distinctive cultural traditions.People are deeply influenced by Buddhism and speak Bhoti language, although Kinnauri is also spoken by many.In spite of that , with the arrival of 21st century globalization , its cultural values are losing sheen. Change is palpable , village landscape is rapidly changing.So get here as fast as you can! Age old Tibetian Bhuddist monastery Rangrik is half hour walk from Charang. According to folklore this monastery was built by 'avtari' monk in a night and nobody knows about its inception year or date. In July and september month every year people celebrate 'Dugpa Cheji' a tibbetian festival where people dance around in circle and monks perform dragon dance.
