Chitkul the last inhabited village in Sangla Valley on the old Hindustan Tibet road. It is a quaint little village that is now becoming a major tourist hub and you can see its landscape getting dominated by garish colored multi-storey hotels. Located at a height of 3450 m, it is a good testing and acclimatization place for your lungs before you move further up in the Himalayas. The beauty of Chitkul lies in the vast valley with a clear view of the Himalayan peaks with the Baspa flowing at its base. On way to Chitkul you see lot of pine trees, small rivulets on their way to merge with the Baspa, you cross many small metal bridges built across these streams of water. It is a pleasure to stand on these bridges and look at the water making its way through the tough rocks.
