Sangla is a town in the Baspa Valley in the Kinnaur District of Himachal Pradesh, close to the Tibetan border, starting at Karcham and ends at Chitkul. The valley is surrounded by forested slopes and offers views of the high mountains. Baspa River flows in the Sangla Valley which is rich in apple orchards, apricot, Walnut, Cedar trees, and glacial streams with trout. Main villages in the valley include Chitkul, Rakcham, Batseri. This area boasts of growing the world's best quality potatoes. The valley remains closed for six months during winter.
Chitkul, on the banks of Baspa River is the last village on the old Hindustan-Tibet trade route. It is also the last point in India one can travel to without a permit. Chitkul is very cold and windy even during summers and the road normally closes down around November after the first snowfall.
