Project #PhotoGuides (6) | The Rock Cut Wonders of Himalaya

in #photoguides3 years ago

The Rock Cur roads of Pangi Kishtwar have become immensely popular of late. Not much was known about them way back in 2012 when we ventured on this road. Though this road is touted as one of the most dangerous roads of the world though this tricky stretch lasts only for a few hundred meters and beyond that, this road is a well-built and wide road.

Nonetheless, that doesn't take away the charm away from these rock cut wonders which have been built by hardworking laborers and engineers of the Road Department. Several people lost their lives while constructing this rock-cut wonder. It connects the remote Pangi Valley to the Gulabgarh Region of Himachal Pradesh.

With summers approaching fast in our side of Himalaya, this ride can be a ride of your lifetime and its worth all the effort and pain to ride to this point (and beyond) because the valley is beautiful and this road - awe inspiring.

One can reach here by riding either from Himachal or J&K. The J&K ride would be relatively easier and less risky. Though from Himachal side, it would be little difficult because of the fragile rock and road conditions.

About #PhotoGuides

#PhotoGuides is a travel and photo series initiative by @devilonwheels & @goel.tarun. It is dedicated to introducing some of the amazing places on this earth to everyone on Steemit. Places that make you get out of your couch and wander in this beautiful world. It is a small attempt from my side to share my travel knowledge on Steemit and help promote some of the remotest yet most beautiful places I/we have visited in the Himalayas and elsewhere. I hope you love and plan your trips to these places in time to come. If you have any questions or doubts in planning such a trip, I will be happy to help you here.

Can I participate in #PhotoGuides?

If you know about such amazing places and wish to contribute in this series, I will request you to use this #PhotoGuides tag so that it helps all fellow Steemians to refer such wonderful places of this earth under one tag. Also, if possible, I will request you to share some quick facts about the place you are sharing in above format to keep the travel information simple and concise.

What do I get in return?

Well, I believe, as much as you love to share your travel knowledge and wonderful places you have visited with fellow Steemians, you may feel more motivated if there are some rewards in it, too (and we all do). As of today, we may not have enough Steem Power to hold a contest or reward you with some heavy upvotes for your contributions. However, I do ensure that we will look forward to your post as loyal readers under the #PhotoGuides tag and if it is worth enough, will upvote with whatever little worth of vote we have with my current and future Steem Power 😎😎


Himachal Pradesh has many gem in his crown. One of the best gem from lap of Himachal. Thanks for sharing Badka ji.
