places to visit in Himachal Pradesh

The Pangi valley of Chamba district is a serene, quiet area inhabited by a tribal folk of only 17,600 people in Himachal Pradesh at 7000 ft to 11000 ft above sea level. Despite it being of natural beauty, it is underdeveloped and hidden away with uneven roads and scanty resources covering a whopping 1600 km sq. The valley is surrounded by white peaked mountain tops and rugged roads making it fabulous for those who enjoy a good trek and adventure. The Saach Pass, which is a mountain pass of 14500 ft, helps the valley with tourism and easy transportation as it offers proper roadways for those who want to travel there. It is open during the months of June and October as it snows heavily throughout the other months.
