Sangti Valley In Arunachal Pradesh Is A Hidden Paradise With Lush Green Pastures And Misty Hills

Sangti Valley
by Suchismita Pal 371

Around 40 minutes away from Arunachal’s Dirang, lies the mesmerising Sangti Valley, dotted with apple, apricot and kiwi orchards. It overlooks the mist-clad Eastern Himalayas. The Sangti Valley isn’t touched by many travellers and is hence profoundly secluded. It mostly attracts campers and trekkers who find solace in getting lost in the roads not taken.

The Sangti river flows through the heart of the valley. Also, rare black-necked cranes visit the valley from China in the winter months. The gurgling sound of the stream is the constant melody here, which mingles amusingly with the chirrups of birds.

The Calmness At Sangti Valley Will Heal Your Soul

Sangti Valley is a paradise to experience nature in its unadulterated form. It will give you a glimpse into the pastoral side of mountain life. You won’t find much luxury here, but the vast mountains and verdant pastures will welcome you with open arms. Here, you can unwind for hours breathing in the heightened serenity. The quiet village in the valley is inhabited by the Monpa tribe and has a scanty population. Sangti valley is a popular picnic spot in Arunachal Pradesh. But one should stay in the destination at least for a day to soak in its magnificence.
