If you think that all of Himachal Pradesh’s secrets have been discovered and experienced – think again! Pangi is stunning, beautiful and the biggest secret around. Even though Chamba is usually not on the top of the list when people are choosing their Himachal Pradesh destinations – I am here to change your mind. This beautiful valley is hidden away, thanks to the difficulty of reaching the place! The valley in itself is massive with a whopping 1600 sq KM region!
You can enjoy extreme tranquility in this serene location! But, also, there are many attractions and places to explore nearby. Killar in general is a popular touristy hamlet on the gorge of Chenab river. There is a stunning shrine of Det Nag in Killar, which is worth a visit!

Given the extreme isolation, the local inhabitants are extremely proud of their home and would want to make your experience all the more memorable as well!
