Himalayan Roads – Reaching Pangi valley via Kashmir

On 1st November, we started our journey from Shimla to the remotest valley of Himachal – Pangi valley in Chamba district. The shortest road, via Saach pass, that connects Pangi to the rest of the world opens for just a few months and it was already closed. So this was the only road open for the people of Pangi.

We reached Kihar in Chamba at the end of a day full of driving and then started early to reach Killar, the headquarted of Pangi the next day. The road enters Jammu and Kashmir at Bhaderwa in Doda district and passes through the remote and beautiful areas of Kishtawar and Padder.

Have a look!

    Nope! Locals drive at night. So they can anticipate the other vehicle and prepare for a pass by looking at their headlights.

    Thankyou. Beautiful!

  • hi, i’m doing the keylong – killar – kishtwar – dalhousie stretch. could use a few tips. any chance of getting in touch with you directly for faster communication?

  • Himanshu Khagta

    Hi bro!
    Thats a great route, but it’ll be best if you consult a travel agent. Unplanned and Unorganised are the words that can describe the way I travel.
    Be safe and consult the right travel agent.


  • Himanshu Khagta

    Thanks a lot John! 🙂
