Sangti Valley is a picturesque valley in the state of Arunachal Pradesh in northeastern India. It is situated at 7,000 feet above sea level and is surrounded by the mighty Himalayas. The valley is known for its breathtaking natural beauty, lush green forests, and crystal-clear rivers. One common folklore associated with the name of Sangti is that this valley emerged after the sea level went down.
