These two beautiful valleys were developed due to trading and fertile atmosphere, which are at an elevation from 3000 m to 5800 m.

These valleys are surrounded by many beautiful snow covered mountains, trees, forests and rivers. Many small villages and temples can be seen in these mountains range.
