Sangla

Sangla is a spell binding valley along the Baspa River based at an elevation of 8900 ft. This breathtakingly beautiful valley is surrounded by Pine forests and melting glaciers. The Baspa river is popular for Trout fishing. The snow-clad mountains form a formidable backdrop. Two or three days in Sangla will rejuvenate the mind and reboot your soul. Spend hours idling away with a fishing rod, take a walk in the velvet moors and meadows, go spiritual in a Gompa or simply sit with your favourite book on the banks of the Baspa, time spent in the Sangla valley has a soothing meditational effect.
