Chitkul – The hidden jewel of Kinnaur...I started my journey from Chandigarh in a deluxe bus which goes till Reckong Peo..Getting down at Karcham was a wise decision to save time as buses to Sangla and Chitkul are accessible from here....
The road to Sangla takes a detour from Karcham Karcham to Sangla village is one of the most dangerous roads on the planet Earth. Baspa River flows through the valley and therefore it is known as Baspa valley as well. Sangla is approx 16-17 km from Karcham.Important - Many travelers end up going to Peo/Kalpa first and than travel back to Sangla valley and then head towards Kaza. If you are coming from Shimla side, then best option is to aim for Sangla valley first and then continue journey further deep into Kalpa/Peo, the other areas of Kinnaur and then towards the Spiti Valley.
