The next day we had to leave Chitkul and head back to Delhi. Mentally and physically prepared for a long arduous journey, but our soul was not ready to leave this heaven and go back. But as they say, no soul is at rest until it moves on and thus we packed our bags and headed back to reality after this beautiful dream.
How To Reach Chitkul
If I can break the Route down into any possible logical combination to complete the journey:
Delhi – Chandigarh – Shimla – Narkanda – Rampur – Karcham – Reckong Peo – Kalpa
Delhi – Chandigarh – Shimla – Narkanda – Rampur – Karcham – Sangla – Rakchham–Chitkul
1. You can undertake the journey by a car as well if you do not want to depend on the bus timings. Booking a cab can however turn out to be more expensive. Shared cabs are also available in some parts. Driving during night time is not recommended in the mountains. Also, the roads are tricky and dangerous, hence only experienced drivers should be there.
2. Instead of changing bus at Shimla, you can also try booking a direct bus till Rampur (H.P.). There is an HRTC AC bus at 07:30 pm and reach Rampur at 09:00 am the next day (Check if it is every day or alternate day).
3. You can also book a direct bus from Chandigarh till Sangla/Chitkul or Reckong Peo.
