Janglik is situated in the south-eastern part of Himachal Pradesh. It is the last village accessible by road. The charming village is close to 400-500 years old. It has about 200 houses and a school.

Notice the architecture of houses and temples in the village. It's ancient. There are beautiful wooden houses with stone roofs. You'll also find orchards surrounding Janglik. This old settlement is picture-perfect for a postcard.

There is a temple at Janglik. It is known for its mountains views and towering pine trees of the Chainsheel region. Notice the horns of big mountains goats on the walls of this temple.

As you walk through this ancient village, you'll get a feeling that it is frozen in time. Look around. You'll see wisps of smoke rising from the chimney of a few huts.
