I have visited this palace last summer and I can say that it is one of the phenomenal places to visit. No human interference Pin valley has truly experienced the heaven in the earth. Imagine a place which is covered by snow in April month. it is just unforgettable. It is 50 km far from the Kaza and it will be a fantastic ride to reach here. The last village of Pin valley is Mudh and I suggest you take the guide for safely visiting this reason.
