  • Both my wife and I visited this place in February last year on way to Chitkul in Himachal Pradesh. The ever stunning Kamru Fort stands at an altitude of 2600 meters above sea level and is only 2 km fr...  more »
  • the climb to the fort is little tiring but worth it. You are given traditional caps and wraparound to enter the temple. Listen to the local version of the story behind the temple.  more »
  • One who can walk and climb stairs at ease will enjoy this place, the locality at the higher ground in the mountains will bring you to a magnificent view around it.  more »

  • The fort is around 600 years old. You have to climb up around 300 feet. There are steps. Its not much of a fort. Old wooden carvings looks good from far. But they only let you see the temple and not inside the fort. You have to wear the traditional cap and waist band to enter. Also remove your foot wear. There was nobody at the gate and I opened it and walked inside. Got very rude and insulting welcome from the watchman / temple man. Later after explaining and apologizing he became very friendly. Overall if you are in sangla Valley and enthusiastic about a small trek, go and see it.
  • A place of historical importance, beautiful view of Sangla valley and peaks of mountains from the fort.
  • Pathetic management, not much to see either. Do not waste an hour climbing up the long staircase. Not worth it.
  • This is masterpiece of centuries old indian hill wood architect craftsmanship. A hindu temples complex with so many sections prohibited to be seen.
  • The fort looks just like one straight out of a Harry Potter or Chandrakanta novel. On top of the mountain, surrounded by clouds, old wooden structure, creepy sounds of opening the heavy wooden door, an abandoned temple of local Snake God on the way...snakes carved roughly in stone adorning the roof and entrance of the centuries old temple, full of mystery...
