Pin Valley in Spiti was declared a National park in 1987. While going to Kaza you need to cross a bridge across the Spiti river approx 10km before Sichling and a narrow winding road will take you across barren meadows to reach a cluster of white-washed houses at Gulling. The next village you will come across is Sagnam. From Sagnam one can proceed further to the Mud Village which is the starting point for the Pin-Parvati trek.
Pin valley is the home of Ibex and Snow leopards. About 2km above Gulling at Kungri one can visit the the 600-year-old Ugyen Sanag Choling Gompa or Monastery. Pin valley is different – even in winter the valley offers a spectacular landscape which is different from the Spiti valley. Its serene and virgin in most parts with the blue-green Pin river, the dried fauna, the small villages, the snow clapped peaks, the eroded mountain faces offering an amazing view both for exploration and photography.
