Pin Valley National Park is situated in the Cold Desert Biosphere Reserve located in the Lahaul and Spiti district of the state of India Himachal Pradesh. This place is 250 km from Manali, 30 km from Kaza at an altitude of about 4,000 meters above sea level to more than 6,000 meters to its summit. The core zone of this national park is spread over a vast area of 700 sq km and its buffer zone is spread over an area of about 1300 sq km.
Since it is situated between the very high mountains of the Himalayas, due to the high altitude and extremely low temperature, the vegetation density here is sparse, here you will find mainly alpine trees and Himalayan deodar trees and endangered medicinal plants species only on the bottom terrain of the valley. And there are no trees in the high-altitude area. That is why this place is also called a cold desert. It is very difficult to reach here due to heavy snowfall in the winter season, in general, the Pin Valley Park area is much more attractive than the Spiti Valley. It is advisable to come here only after April to November, at the same time, different species of mountain wildlife are also seen here, such as the famous Himalayan snow leopard and its prey, rare species of ibex, and blue sheeps, etc. There are also the Siberian ibex, Bharal, Red fox, Weasel, and Marten for which the area is home. Many species of birds are also found here including Pika, Bearded Vulture (Golden Eagle), Himalayan Snowcock, Snow Partridge and Snow Finch, Griffon, Himalayan Chow, and Reven, etc.
Because the height of the animals is much less compared to the normal animals found in other India. Therefore, due to the geographical structure of this place and the strange wildlife found here, people who are interested in geology and biology like to come here.
Due to being a very difficult place in the Himalayas, this area is devoid of modern resources, before coming to this sparsely populated area, people start this journey by taking warm clothes, medicines, etc. in sufficient quantity.
The cuisine of Pin Valley has an interesting mix of cuisines that you find in the whole Spiti Valley, where Tibetan food is quite famous. Along with North-Indian food, Israeli food can also be enjoyed here. The local food here includes Momos, Thukpa, Butter Tea, Chang.
