View of the Tiber road at Pangi, with the Chini peaks in the distance, taken by Samuel Borne in the 1860s. Pangi valley is one of the remotest valleys of the chamba district and is sandwiched between Pir Panjal and Zanskar ranges. The beautiful River Chandrabhaga flows through it. Due to geographical conditions the valley remains cut-off from the rest of the world for more than six months in a year. The access to the valley mainly is from Sach pass, Cheni pass (with an altitude of 14,382 feet), or through Jammu and Kashmir. Pangi lies on the Old Hindustan Tibet road.
