Baspa River
About Baspa River

Baspa River rises near the Indo-Tibetan border and forms the Baspa Valley (also known as the Sangla Valley) which is one of the most beautiful in Himalayas. The Chung Sakhago Pass lies at the head of the valley. It is fed by the persistent glaciers and shares the catchment area with the Ganges.

Baspa starts at the Baspa hills, joins Sutley River from the left bank near Karcham.The upper and middle slopes of the valley along the river are covered with oak and pine forests. Pastures, meadows and fields cover the lower slopes. Some of the most scenic villages in the Himalayas can be found here. Only the lower half of the 95 kilometers length of the valley is occupied - all the way from Chitkul (3,475 m) to where the Baspa meets the Sutlej River at Karcham (1,830 m).Although gentle most of the way, it would be difficult to raft in Baspa as some extends have sheer falls.

The Baspa River is a fast flowing river that passes though the hills of Sangla. The surroundings of Baspa River provide an opportunity to view timely rainbows and brown trout. It is also an angler’s heaven for being home to a huge variety of fishes. Crossing this river is also an attraction among the visitors as this process involves ride in a basket along the way. Its adjacent areas also stand appropriate for trekkers and campers.

The Baspa river, the another feeder of the Satluj, rises on the north eastern declivity of the outer Dhauladhar of the Himalaya. It is a big and valuable streamwhich runs smoothly down a famous valley. It is bounded on the south-west by the Dhaola Dhar and on the north-east by the huge Raldang peak of the Great Himalaya. The channel of the river is wide.

At Chhitkul its width is about twenty meters, lower down, the width is from twenty-three to twenty-five meters. After coursing in a north westerly direction it falls into the Satluj at Karchham. The Baspa is next to Spiti in size and is about seventy-two km in length. Its whole course lies within the district. As compared to other rivers the Baspa is quite turbulent and often changes its course thus doing extensive damage to the cultivated fields on its bank. It receives the various streams and streamlets on both of its banks. On the left side mentionable tributaries are Thatang, Rukti, Zupkia, and Bering and on the right Suthi. This is the most inhabited valley and there are now permanent bridges at many places. An outlandship fish species known as brown trout (salmo fario) is found in this river.
