Chitkul Tourism & Travel Guide

This tourist hot spot happens to be the highest village in the Sangla valley region and lies to the right of the River Baspa. Beyod Chitkul lies the Great Himalayas that lead one into the forbidden tracts of the land of Tibet. This place happened to lie along the ancient trade route between India and Tibet and this is evident from the race of people that inhabit the place and the kind of jewelry that they wear on them. A little past Chitkul is the last Indian outpost at Nagasthi and civilians are not allowed to set foot there. This place is extremely beautiful and is a treat to ones senses. There are about three temples here that are dedicated to the Goddess Mathi.

Once known as Shyamala, synonymous with Goddess Kali, Shimla has been a summer retreat long before India even gained independence. This famous hill station similarly has a lot of places and things to see untouched by time. For instance, take a vintage joy ride from Kalka station to Shimla in a charming toy train that will take you through towering Deodars, hills and villages. Shimla truly comes alive during winters when a blanket of snow covers it all over making every nook and corner gleam and glisten. One such place is the ice skating rink (natural ice) near Lakkar Bazaar that opens from November to December. More winter sports include skiing, which can be enjoyed 21 km from Shimla in Kufri. Adventure activities such as rafting at Tattapani or a trek to Shali Tibba and Pabbar Valley are also worthwhile experiences. If you are fond of haunted stories and interested in having your own spooky adventure, you'll love Shimla. A lot of people including the renowned Rudyard Kippling (in 'My Own True Ghost Story) have written various eerie stories set around Shimla. A place known most for giving many people the jeepers-creepers is the Charleville Mansion. Another time travelling portal is the antique bookstore, Marina Brothers, located on Mall Road, which is truly a reader and collector's paradise. There are many luxury and budget hotels here, meaning you'll never fall short of options. Popular places to eat include Wake & Bake, Ashiana, Cecil and Minchy's that serve commendable Indian and multi-cuisine dishes and delicious gourmet food.
