Itching to go out for a bike ride in the mountains and experiencing nature first hand? Don’t want to take the oh so common Leh – Ladakh route? Don’t worry, we have you covered. You can still enjoy the Himalayan mountain ranges while riding your bike even if you don’t want to choose the famous Leh – Ladakh route. We have something new for you in about the same region but entirely different. What we are suggesting is that you can go bike riding in the Sach Pass and Pangi Valley of beautiful North India.
Sach Pass and Pangi Valley
Sach Pass is a mountain pass which stands at the trilling height of approximately 14,000 ft. The backdrop of Sach Pass is the Pir Panjal Range that are the inner mountain ranges of the Great Himalayas. Sach Pass connects to the Pangi Valley which sort of lies in the Chamba District of the Indian state Himachal Pradesh. If you want more details then the Sach Pass connects the Chamba Valley to the Pangi Valley.
Pangi Valley is known to be the world’s most dangerous road for its narrow road and thousands of feet of free falling below. It adds to the thrill and is not suitable for a novice or a faint hearted biker.
A note of concern here is that if you are planning to go bike riding here in this region then you must know the ground realities like the harsh weather and the treacherous terrain. The Sach Pass is the direct connecting way to Pangi Valley and is of the shortest duration but due to unfavourable weather conditions, it is open for just five months i.e. from June to October. One can go to Pangi Valley via the Jammu & Kashmir route too but it takes much longer.
So gear up with appropriate equipment and straddle your bike for a whole new adventure of riding in the Sach Pass and Pangi Valley area.
