Holidify's Opinion

What's Great?

Less commercialization. Not as crowded as other Hill Stations of Himachal Pradesh. Scrumptious fruits are grown here. An ideal place for trekking and camping.

What's Not So Great?

Extremely cold temperatures during the winters. The routes leading to Sangla can be dangerous and are prone to landslides. It is located far away from themajor cities, so the journey to Sangla can be long and tiring.

For Whom?

Sangla is the perfect place for those enthusiasts who want to explore the offbeat part of Himachal Pradesh and wish to relax in a meditative state amidst the natural and non-commercial ambience.
