The first and most obvious reason is the sheer beauty and pureness of the valley and mountains and the absence of commercialization. We don't even have a traffic light! Second, many are here because of the presence of a spiritual or religious group to which they belong. Some are here just to be in a lifestyle conducive to calmness and solitude. Visit the ashram, monastery, Buddhist Centers, Tibetan Stupa, and other places of interest. Surrounded by Sacred Mountains and creeks make for a tranquil setting. at high altitude (8000 feet).
