From daily traffics, stress and chaos of life, all we long for is a nice vacation and break. A break to rejuvenate ourselves and find calm. Mountains have always been one stop for calmness and freshness of mind. So, here we are with another gem in Himachal Pradesh called Moorang. Read about it below!
Moorang is in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh. It is greenery with beautiful tall mountains and clean, fresh air. The place is at a very high altitude in Himachal. Also, it is covered by forests such as the Govind Pachu Vihar Natural Preserve and the Great Himalayan National Park.
The place is hidden and you must have not heard about it much. But it is surely not less than a dreamland. Many hill stations have now become commercial, but some are still raw. So, you can either have a nice trek or just read a book while gazing the mountains.
