Rampur falls on the left bank of the famous Sutlej river, served as Bushahar’s winter capital. There is also a famous temple in the heart of the city which you could visit.
Once you reach Karcham via (NH-05), where there is a hydro electric project plant, there is a road bifurcation where one road heads towards the Kalpa and the other one to the famous Baspa valley.
At Karcham, one has to cross the road over to the other side, and then head straight towards the road which goes towards Chitkul.
Sangla is only about 20 kilometers from Karcham, but the road is extremely bad from here and with numerous hairpin bends, you will actually feel like your heart is in your mouth.
At around 8 PM after almost 12-13 hours journey from Shimla we reached Sangla. We were disappointed that we could not see anything as it was already dark. We had an early dinner and headed inside our blankets.
The next morning we were greeted with the spectacular views of the Baspa valley and the ice capped mountains. The Baspa river which rises from the Indo-Tibet border forms the Baspa valley which is one of the most scenic valley in the Himalayas.
