Tashigang is a small village in Himachal Pradesh, the northern state of India. It is located at an altitude of 4,650 meters in the Spiti valley. This village is a home to 6 families with a total population of 40. You may be wondering why we’re talking about this tiny but gorgeous village. We’re not surprised, because what most people don’t know is that Tashigang is the world’s highest polling station!
The Government of India has ensured that even at these great heights the small number of voters are not left behind in the ongoing election of 2019. The polling booth has been setup here around 29 kms from the India-China border and it will facilitate the people of two villages – Tashigang and Gete to cast their vote in the ongoing Lok Sabha elections in India.
While Tashigang is not a very popular tourist destination, it has a lot to offer to the explorers who are constantly looking to find something mesmerizing. Tashigang has cattle sheds, old & rustic houses, Buddhist Stupas, beautiful landscape of the Spiti valley and the mountains and magical view of the Milky Way galaxy at night.
You can enjoy a home stay at one of the houses in the village and have fun doing activities like trekking, spending the day in the green fields, detoxifying yourself in the pollution free environment at an altitude of 15,256 feet. While you feel the cool clouds floating around you, get to know the simple and uncomplicated life of people of Tashigang, gazing the stars in the cold night or beholding a clear sky and experiencing their peaceful way of life, make sure that you have purchased an adequate travel insurance
plan before you embark on your adventurous journey. You can also check out Global Personal Guard, a health insurance
policy offered by Bajaj Allianz, which can protect you from any medical mishaps when you are travelling anywhere in the world.
Hope you visit Tashigang soon and make the most of the views and clean environment of one of the highest places in India!
And we also hope you show your country that you care and give your vote for the future of the nation!
