Langza is small place lying on the crossroad between India and Tibet. It is of bowl-shaped and named as the “Fossil Village” of Himachal. The place has an abundant of pre-historic marine fossils and houses a 1000-year-old Buddha Statue which is visible even from the miles of distance. In today’s fast-paced world, this place seems to be a place from an ancient time where time stands still. There might be not much of the hotel options, but homestay can be a great choice.


A small mountain town will surely take you to the ancient time with its 15th-century wooden castle with huge verandahs, high roof, and majestic fireplace. The castle is now turned into a heritage hotel. The place rose to fame when it was featured in a movie “Jab We Met.” The beauty of this small mountain town is timeless.
