How To Reach Sangla Valley

Via Air

Two airports exist that can enable travellers to go at least halfway between Delhi and Sangla Valley. The closest one is in Shimla, and the other is at Kullu, close to Manali. From Shimla or Kullu, take a bus or a private taxi to complete the remaining distance. There is also a different flying route that can be used because Rampur has a helipad, but doing so might put more strain on your finances. For anyone with limited time who would still like to see the amazing and uncharted Kinnaur in Himachal Pradesh, I would recommend flying as the best mode of transportation to get to Sangla Valley from Delhi.

Via Train

There aren't any direct trains available to Sangla Valley, which is 8,530 feet above sea level and still under development, so this is a sad fact. However, there is still some distance that may be covered by train from Delhi to Sangla Valley. From New Delhi, there are numerous trains that stop at interchanges on their way to Shimla. The train ride takes about 6 hours to get from Delhi to Kalka, which serves as a hub. There is a toy train that runs between Kalka and Shimla; it travels at an average speed of 18 km/h, so it will take about 5 hours to reach Shimla. After arriving in Shimla, you have the option of taking a bus or reserving a private vehicle to get you to Sangla Valley.

Despite Google's claims to the contrary, the road trip from Delhi takes about 16 hours. Delhi, Chandigarh, Shimla, Kufri, Narkanda, Rampur, Karcham, and Sangla are all stops along the route. Another possible route may be to substitute Manali for Shimla, although doing so would present its own set of challenges because Rohtang Pass would be involved. The Manali-Sangla Valley route is not the best option if you want to go from Delhi to Sangla Valley in the winter because the Rohtang Pass is also closed during that time.
