So as the autumn started knocking the doors,a himalayan roadtrip was always there on the cards.
Autumn in himalayas is always a mesmerising experience as the mountains get covered with so many shades of colours.
And what better destination i could think of than the last himalayan village in Himachal Pradesh
Yeah..you got it right..!!
Chitkul it is...!!!
It was an another lame monday morning in Delhi and amidst the monotonous routine i finally decided to hit the roads in my ford figo with my favourite person and travel to this little paradise in Himachal Pradesh.
So the journey started at 8 in the evening from delhi and with all the excitement both of us drove continuously for 18 hours to reach Chitkul.
The journey is one of it’s kind where one gets to drive on some real thrilling roads.
It was around 9 in the morning when we found a himachali old lady on the way asking for a lift and we were always ready to change that perception about delhi people that not all of us are bullies.
Aunty was going for a wedding in wangtu and told us about the culture over there.
We took some blessings from her and moved on with our journey.
We reached chitkul by 2 in the afternoon.
It was quiet and peaceful.
The sound of strong winds was making it special and with no much people around the place looked surreal.
We stayed at zostel and since it was an October afternoon,we were lucky enough to get the dorms available.
We took our lunch at the famous hindustan ka aakhri dhaba and then started exploring the village.
People were getting prepared for the upcoming winter season stocking up the wood for fire and groceries.
As the sun went down, the temperature fell abruptly and it got damn cold in the night.
Zostel had organised a screening of an animated movie named Coco.
We enjoyed some lipsmacking food while watching that movie but i’ll admit i was damn sleepy afterall what do you expect from a person who had been driving for 18 continuous hours.
