Road Trip to Sangla, India

Road Trip to Sangla (Kinnaur, Himachal Pradesh, India)

I recently drove from Shimla to the renowned Sangla Valley in Kinnaur. If you’re planning a trip too, then you might want to check out this illustrative article.
Here are some shots from my camera:

The Road
Getting closer to Sangla, it gets deep! And when I say deep, I mean deep with a capital ‘D’.Simply breathtaking! This is a shot from the road.

Intrigued?? So what’s keepin’ ya? Get out that car of yours and depress the pedal down to the metal (well, not entirely! You just saw the thin furrow-like roads in the pics! Haha!)

Bon Voyage!
