West Kameng, March 09: Sangti Valley in the West Kameng district of Arunachal Pradesh is one of the offbeat places in the state. Most of the time, the valley is seen as a transit destination or a very short detour. Believe us, these quick detours don’t do justice to the scenic beauty of the valley.
The valley is about 15 km from Dirang city and about 50 km from the famous Sela Pass. Most of the time, due to other popular and nearby destinations, Sangti Valley is overlooked, and we miss many interesting experiences.
Slowly but surely, the Sangti Valley is becoming increasingly popular with travelers looking for unusual and unexplored places to discover. Nature and animal lovers have paid a lot of attention to this valley.

If you are looking for unusual adventures, an unforgettable time away from the hustle and bustle of cities, you must go to Sangti Valley. The area also offers trekking and hiking opportunities for the more adventurous.
You can of course camp in the valley if you have permission from the local authorities.
