Spot the eagle's nest! Hear the tales about the snow leopard nest. This valley is great for a relaxing walk. Ask your driver to pick you up at the other site. When water is high, you may have to do long jumps over the stream,...More

Its great place for hiking, birdwatching and some wildlife spotting. Try to explore the surrounding hills, and if you get lucky, you might see ibex.

Well worth visiting beautiful scenery. I didn't get to see any Yaks but with visitor numbers rising each year I am not surprised. I did see lots of vultures.

Amazing site to witness. It is quite the contradiction to see a miniature glacier nestled in a long narrow cavern in the middle of summer with temperatures of 35C. The rest of the valley was very scenic and serene which provide a beautiful background for...More
