SANGLA ROAD
Day 1

BEGINNING OF OUR JOURNEY.

Best way to travel across himachal pradesh is definitely by bus. It has a well connected bus service in all of himachal. In order to reach chitkul by bus you can take a bus to karcham as there is no direct bus to chitkul available, then from karcham you will get a bus to chitkul. Another way of reaching chitkul is renting a taxi. Estimate journey from from chandigarh to chitkul is around 12 hours if you do not take any stoppage in between. SANGLA road is one the most dangerous roads of india which will make you stop your car and enjoy the views and the road. The option is to stay at sangla for night and leave for chitkul the next morning.

Day 2

When you'll wake up you are going to find yourself in heaven. Yes!! That's the right word for Sangla. Enjoy it's views for some time, have some breafast and leave for chitkul. It's an hour drive from sangla to chitkul and the roads are not so good the views definitely are. Today you just have to find a good homestay or a hotel(homestays are much more recommended). You can easily get a fine homestay for about Rs 1000- 1500 per night or if you want you can also stay in a tent riverside, which will cost you around Rs4000- 5000 per night.

Day 3

Today is the day you'll actually start to explore chitkul. Before going there just keep in mind that it not a well developed tourist place where you will find lots of activities to do. Chitkul is just a small village in himachal pradesh where people go just for its natural beauty. So explore this amazing place as much as you can and leave only your footprints behind. You can sit riverside, eat some maggi and have a cup of tea in the freezing cold weather of chitkul. Rent a bike in this place is a must, only place in chitkul where you rent a bicycle is zostel. They charge RS 150 per hour and you can go till the checkpost on bicycle which is a adventure in itself.
