About Sangla

The Sangla valley is spread over 42 Km at a height of 8,789 ft on the banks of the Baspa tributary of the Satluj, between the Great Himalayan and Dhauladhar ranges near Himachal’s south-eastern border with Tibet. The largest village in Kinnaur, Sangla often lends its name to the whole Baspa Valley. A drive through this area encaosulates a dramatic transition in landscape from spectacular river gorge at the entrance to Kinnaur to alpine valley pastures. The valley is surrounded by forested slopes and offers views of the high mountains. Its location in the greater Himalayan range gives it a milder climate than the plains. Sangla is the major town in the valley with having petrol pump, Bank ATMs, Post Office, Restaurants, Bar, hotels and shops. Sangla Valley is a part of Kinnaur and inhibited by Kinnauris. The main livelihood is agriculture while apples are a major cash crop here. Sangla village is on a slope with houses rising one above the other with gigantic Kinner-Kailash peak (6,050 m) towering over it.
