The last Inhabited Village in Indo China border in kinnur district. Amazed by the beauty of this village, believe me, it is a treat for your eyes. Situated at the height of 3450 meters, the mesmerising rise of Baspa river, cool breeze , fresh air, landscape, local food, and the iron bridge adds to the soulful Chitkul.
These reasons are enough to make you want to visit this mystical valley. Chitkul, didn't disappoint me at all. It is 24 km from Sangla, the landscape is quite picturesque. As I moved from Sangla, baspa river gave me company throughout. The population of this village is 600. Baspa river flowing smoothly across kinnur kailash range.
April to June is the best time to visit Chitkul Village. The cool wind is blowing in summertime as well. Less of snow and no rain makes it a perfect time to witness the beauty of this gem.
