Kangra is not just a place, it's a complete region with glorious history, culture and a gift of nature in lower Himalayas. One can just enter into this region and see its beauty.But one has to make some efforts to look into its rich culture and history. Kangra Fort is magnificent and its occupants Katochs had links with Mahabharata epic.... More

this valley has the perfect combination of history (forts), religon (Hindu temples, Buddist temples), international feel (McLeod Ganj), adventure tourism ( hand gliding), food (do try Kangri Dham; if you like veg food), nature (himalayas)...:-) great place for all round vacation with good connectivity by air and road..

The Kangra Valley is beautiful and peaceful. I could gladly stay here for my entire visit! I didn't dislike anything. I did like the mountains and the valley vies, the roads, the people and the peaceful atmosphere. There was lots of great shopping but also many quiet and lovely places to just BE!

Though Kangra is not much on tourist list when they visit Himachal. But I recommend them to visit Kangra region which is at best when it comes to nature. Dhauladhar range mostly snow capped adds more value to its beauty. Best town to see this beauty is Dharamsala and Mcleodganj. Must visit for all.

Take your time to travel through the Kangra Valley. There are some wonderful views. Hills can mean rain, of course, be prepared. The quality of the roads varies. Some are very good but be prepared for rock falls. Some have dizzying precipices, no armco.

We had visited in the end of September this year. We had a different idea about the valley which was not fulfilled. It was not that beautiful that we had our earlier impression. lack of infrastructure is seen everywhere.

Take a bike and ride the valley! Enjoy the scenic beauty. Visit the Kangra temple ad fort. Also go further a little to Jwaladevi temple. roughly 150km bike / bullet ride will give you the Valley !

The day we visited the place, weather was excellent. Enjoyed the scenic beauty at the fullest. Visiting the fort was an experience that I will never forget. Other than being a historical place, I found different species of birds here. It takes time to view the fort thoroughly so travellers should reach here with sufficient time in hand.

Kangra Valley is beautiful. I was at Dharamshala this August and traveled to Dalhousie. The valleys are really scenic.
