Chitkul, the last inhabited village near the Indo-China border, is a place straight out of a fairy tale. There are snow-clad mountains, a swift river flowing down, dense-green forests and cute-colourful houses. I have always seen this kind of heavenly beauty in paintings and wallpapers, but last month, the splendour of this village left me awestruck when I saw everything in reality.
The Indian roads end in Chitkul, which is situated at a towering altitude of around 11,319 feet above sea-level. It has the cleanest air in India and you can definitely feel that. The charm of this peaceful hamlet will make you fall in love with every bit of it.
To be frank, no words or photographs can do justice to its exquisiteness, but I will try my best to paint its exact picture for you. The truth is that you yourself have to go there to experience it. For me, this village is the most stunning place I have ever seen.
