You even get to witness the gorgeous Sainj River flowing gracefully. This river winds up to meet the Beas River, creating pristine and gorgeous views along the way. Interestingly, this place is also known to be the home of Pandavas, therefore it is considered holy! On another note, this particular village also welcomes couples who elope and get married against the cultural and societal norms. Look at how the tables have turned; if your religion or culture is against you Shangarh Meadows isn’t!
