Sangla is a beautiful village in Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh. As it is in upper Himachal, the journey to Sangla valley is not only adventurous but also prolonged one(read more on that here). Today I’m going to present some of the interesting pictures of Sangla Valley Kinnaur I captured while wandering around in the village.
The village of Sangla Valley Kinnaur starts with a bus stand followed by a small yet pragmatic market having ample options of hotels available nearby. Locals from nearby smaller villages also use this market for basic needs. Mainly because the other main market is in Rampur which is almost 3 hours away. Although most of the houses are in the valley and not on the main highway. Thus, to get the vibe of the village, we have to walk down the narrow alleys surrounded by lovely colored houses.

As Sangla valley is almost cut off from the rest of the country for a good six months because of heavy snowfall, the houses are built of wooden structure primarily. Wooden logs are very commonly found in every other house here.

I was even amused to see that most of the local’s store (& cover) water tanks to prevent the (limited) available water from freezing during the winter. Below are a few of the houses on the hilltop with a beautiful view of the Sangla valley and Baspa river flowing beneath.
I was overwhelmed by the flamboyant Sangla valley and alluring houses with creative doors. Delighted to notice that locals here are not afraid to experiment with the colors and art they put in their homes’ entrance 🙂
