Day 3

I left for Chitkul and the view of the roads after Shimla we so pleasant and mesmerizing. Chitkul is a place which takes you to a dreamland where everything is just too beautiful, 21 Kms from Sangla. Its the last inhabited village on Indo-Tibetian border. The village has sprawling farms and a great view of Baspa river flowing through the valley. People here are very hospitable and helpful. There are many options for staying in the village, don't miss this place if you are planning a trip to spiti .

Then I left for Kalpa which is also one of the most scenic place and one should definitely not miss it. There is a suicide point 3kms away from Kalpa that is so famous for taking pictures. One should be very careful while clicking pictures there.

Day 6

Then we went to Pin Valley, Pin is a beautiful valley located in Lahaul & Spiti district, this place is totally magical. I would definitely recommend if you are going to Spiti do visit Mud ( last village of the valley) . It provides you the best scenic view that you get in whole Spiti Region.
