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:
Satluj’s splendour at Nirath (Close to Rampur)
SARAHAN( You have to take a detour of 17 kms. from the highway to reach this place but it’s worth it!)
View from Circuit House, Sarahan.
Bhimakali Temple, Sarahan
View of Shrikhand Mahadev Peak from Sarahan
River Satluj moving daintily along the high road!
Nathpa Dam (View from the road, zoomed in)
Truly a beacon on the will power of mankind!
Now zoomed out, giving an idea of the actual perspective from the road)
Other side of the dam. 3 electronically controlled gates divert massive volumes of water into a 45 km. long underground tunnel to Jhakri where electricity is produced!
Excess water being ejected.
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!)
