“Chitkul, the last village before Tibet”
Review of Chhitkul

Chhitkul
Reviewed August 31, 2014

The quietude of the place can’t be inked down on a piece of paper but I had the most astounding view in front of my eyes. We marveled over the exquisiteness of the location, its dirt free stillness, people and vicinity. There was a gateway to Tibet from there onwards. Although the road to this place was not good at all but it was all worth the pain we underwent. If anybody plans to go to Chitkul, its approximately 120 kms from Rampur and has copious hotels and guest houses to stay for overnight but no mobile network. However Sangla is good when it comes to mobile network and also has handful of hotels to stay and cafes to munch.

we went chitikul as a site seeing from sangla valley.this is the where trekking starts. riding to this palace is itself wonderful. the road is little bit bumpy though but that never bothers. on the way to this place has a lot of streams flowing over the plain road. thus make the journey wonderful but once you reach chitkul every tiredness will be gone when rives bias will touch your feet humbly. the scenic beauty is marvelous.. chitkul have a population of nearly 169. and people live here exactly obeyed by the nature's rule. they are extremely humble, helpful. a must visit place for every indian.

Chitkul is a place which takes you to a dreamland where everything is just too beautiful. I walked down to the river Baspa and spent hours looking at the river and enjoying the cool breeze. The place is so beautiful and peaceful you fall in love with it. I had tea and Maggi after reaching the road. There is a beautiful temple in chitkul, which was close when I reached there. But the entire place has some charm which makes you stay there forever. Sadly, I could not stay there as I had to leave for Kalpa.

This place is about 18 kms from sangala and is far from traffic congested cities. The only option to visit this place is if you are traveling by your own vehicle. The road condition is not good but once u will reach the place you will forget everything. I will suggest to visit this place only if u have a sound vehicle or a 4X4. The scenic beauty is worth watching.This place is beyond everything.The place is a small remote village unknown to people and is the last village of India. I traveled in April and there was not even a single tourist. A must must place to visit if you love nature.No need to worry if you are planning to stay overnight as there are few guests houses .
The route i followed to reach the place was : Shimla > Rampur>Jeori>Sarahan(Night stay )>Jeori>Wangtu>Tapri>Karcham>Sangala(Night Stay)>Chitkul.
The only thing to worry is the road condition from wangtu , but it is worth traveling once you will reach the place.
