Kinnaur!! The hidden paradise of wonder!


Tripoto.com

The mountains of Kinnaur are irrefutably one of the most pristine and magnificent places in Himachal. It is only recently that roads have been built to access these valleys, previously it was only a trekker's paradise. Apart from its unique cultural diversity and gender norms (this is the only region in Himachal where women also wear Kinnauri caps), it is an ideal home for overwhelming sunrise and sunsets and grandeur mountain views. One of the most beautiful valleys in Kinnaur is the Sangla Village. It takes 22 hours to reach Sangla from Delhi and there is only one HRTC bus that goes and comes from Delhi-Sangla.The bus leaves from ISBT kashmere Gate or you can take a flight to Shimla and take a bus to Sangla. It is a backbreaking tiresome journey but its completely worth it. If you are not up for it, you should stop at Mashobra which is a beautiful village ahead of Shimla and take a day's rest before leaving for Sangla. Yes, with an ideal bike ride to Spiti and Ladakh , Sangla becomes a must stop in your itinerary. The best and cheapest place to stay at Sangla is Roojoom Bagpacker's Guesthouse. It is one of the most unique places with most amazing view of mountains which feels like Home and you make amazing friends and share art,music and stories with Travellers. The hosts will become your BFF's and you will be among warm friendly people.You can cook your own food, make friends and trek to Sangla lake, go to Kamru Fort, Rakcham and Chitkul.
