Thangu is the place to be if you want to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city and spend some time in the lap of nature.
Located at a mind-boggling altitude of 3900 meters, it is a charming village that is just a two-hour drive away from Lachen.
Thangu Valley is a perfect spot for nature lovers as it offers a stunning view of the Tibetan Plateau. You can see rows of trees and as you go higher, the view gets more and more beautiful. The alpine flowers that bloom between May and June add vibrant colors to the already picturesque landscape. But beware, in the colder months between October and March, heavy snow covers these beautiful flowers.
Thangu Valley is not just a pretty face, it is also home to some exciting trekking trails. You can take a hike from Thangu to places like Chopta Valley and Muguthang. But if you’re like me and hiking isn’t your cup of tea, you can simply sit back and enjoy the tranquil beauty of the village.
It’s not just nature that Thangu has to offer, there is also a big military base here due to its proximity to the India-China border. So if you see a soldier walking around, don’t be alarmed, they are just doing their job.
To get to Thangu Valley, you can hire a taxi from Lachen and in just 30 kilometers, you’ll reach this tranquil paradise.
So pack your bags and get ready to be enchanted by the mesmerizing beauty of Thangu Valley. Trust me, it’s worth it!
