Sangla Sojha Sojourn

Sangla Sojha Sojourn

(8 nights 9 days)

Travel deep into the unknown territory where we at Banjara promise to show you the most wonderful side of our country known only to very few. Your journey starts from Thanedar, the birthplace of apples in India and an orchard town. The Banjara retreat amidst the orchards is a serene place perfect for unwinding.

Driving from Thanedar, we reach one of the most beautiful valleys of Kinnaur - Sangla known for its massive towering mountains on all sides and the beautiful Baspa river with good opportunities for trout fishing. From one amazing destination to another, we reach Shoja, ahead of Jalori Pass. Tall Silver oak trees, filling the roadside with Blue Iris, are a sight to behold.

The place is again an angler's paradise, due to its proximity to the Tirthan River, which also abounds in the trout. Besides, it also provides breathtaking sceneries and walks to nearby lakes and forts. Go on to Manali, the queen of all hill stations to give that icing to your holiday cake and to take back the best of memories and mementos home.
