Urgam Valley is a collection of villages, small valleys and Hindu pilgrimage all tucked away, approximately 100 Kms before southern Indian-Tibetan Border in the Chamoli district of Uttarakhand. The few famous villages that produce cannabis are Devgeam, Basa, Kalgot and Dumak written in the increasing altitude respectively.
The two main collection sites are Devgram village and Basa Village, where Cannabis is grown alongside amaranth and instead of harvesting and sowing seeds each year, they let the plants grow at site by themselves year on year. Which can be seen in the stupefying diversity in the cannabis plants which are found growing naturally everywhere.
The plants usually grow moderately tall around 10-14 ft. with extreme side branching and narrow leaflets. Plants definitely have much less of a stalky hemp look which is seen in some lowland varieties from Kumaon region of Uttarakhand and Himachal Pradesh as well.
Most plants do not show a very prominent bud structure and express more separated fox tailed bracts, with vibrant colors. Although a high intra-population variation is notable without any majorly striking difference in the climate.
Plants mostly have a very characteristic fruity smell that comes off of highland varieties such as nepali or kashmir. Most of the fruits can be smelled in combination with other smells which are of pine, floral, spice or incense.
