Kamru

Gateway to Kamru, Kinnaur

The ancient fortified village of Kamru tumbles down an island hill in the heart of the stunning, orchard-laden Sangla Valley. The syncretic Hindu-Buddhist-Animist traditions of this Kinnauri village makes it a brilliant place in which to discover local culture. The experience begins right at the ornate doorway to the village square – a polished timber extravaganza of gods, demigods, nymphs, and humans, complete with a bronze bell for stray visitors.
