FAQ on Snowboarding in Sethan Valley

Is there any internet access in Sethan Valley?

Sethan is unable to connect to the internet via cellular. You may stay nearby at Hamta Homestay which has internet access. The village's attractiveness however is also linked to its lack of connectedness! For the first time you'll be dragged away from the digital grid and nature will invite you to relish every minute!

Is it common for tourists to feel nauseous while travelling up to the Sethan Valley?

After Prini the altitude rises at an exponential rate. No matter how fit young or able you are you can suffer the effects of Altitude Mountain Sickness. If you have a case of nausea or a headache while driving on the winding roads I recommend taking some medication to help you relax. Alternatively lowering your altitude as soon as possible is the best way to heal AMS.

When is the ideal time to go to the Sethan Valley?

If you want to snowboard ski or go on a winter adventure the months of January through early May may be the greatest time to come. However the summer seasons of June to November (barring monsoons of course!) are ideal for unsupervised expeditions and discovering oneself in the woods. In the summer there are a variety of adrenaline-pumping activities such as bouldering to keep you engaged!

Special Tip

If you're hungry, the greatest thing to eat is whatever your lodging provides. This is not a tourist destination or even a town with a significant population. The Kalzang Dhaba, on the other hand, offers excellent maggi and excellent coffee, as well as free fascinating views!
