The scenic Kangra Valley, a popular tourist destination is separated from Chamba by the highest peak of the Dauladhar Range - The White Mountain.
It stretches from here till the south of the Beas river. Geographically it lies on Western Himalayan region and most of it is under the jurisdiction of the state of Himachal Pradesh. A good way for one to remember the valley is through well-known places like McLeodganj (Dharamshala) and Triund.
It is a picturesque valley well known for its local art & culture and the perfect time to visit this place is between March to June. A devastating earthquake in 1905 destroyed much of the Valley, its old structures and killed about 19,000 people but magically, many important places have still stood strong.
The Kangra valley is home to adrenaline filled activities like paragliding, mountain quad biking and during the season, snow-boarding.
It has some of the best waterfall spots which make for amazing barbeque backdrops and we can always rustle up a meal for you using our portable kitchen. Fishing and white-water rafting go hand-in-hand here and one can trot on a horse during evenings or even cycle up the hills. Hiking & camping are a given, due to Kangra’s complimenting landscape.
You can always cool down your body with a massage and rub down and wake up to yoga and meditation in mornings.
Kangra for ETU Adventures, has been a treasure trove of unique experiences. We cannot forget the amazing time we had at Tapta Pani, the natural hot springs. We also indulge in some activities that needs to be experienced first hand:
cooking in open air!
While we did visit the usual Dharamshala stretch, we gave it our twist by taking a more adventurous and beautiful route, hanging out with travelers from across the world and setting up barbeque next to a primeval waterfall. Naddi was also another brilliant experience. Going by what we have experienced so far, we promise you a trip of the Kangra like no other.
