The quaint village of Chitkul, the last inhabited Indian village before the Indo-China Border at 11,320 feet high offers a distinctive connection with nature and unforgettable experience. Breathe in the fresh mountain air, and soak in the tranquil environment. The sights, sounds and smells are all as nature intended, truly magical destination for the nature enthusiasts.

With snow-strewn mountains, pristine gurgling rivers, beautiful temples, traditional Kinnauri-style slate-roofed houses, this village is a perfect escape.

Chitkul is sure to hypnotize the visitors with its pristine and untouched beauty. Rivers, streams, mountains, forests, meadows and apple orchards, this hidden gem has everything!

We set on a short trek to Nagasathi along a marked pathway with the stupendous snow-strewn mountains to your company. It takes roughly about an hour to reach Nagasathi, the last village on the old Hindustan-Tibet trade route beyond which the entry is prohibited. The entire trekking route is adorned with the post-card picture-perfect sceneries with Baspa flowing to the right, surrounded by lofty snow-clad peaks, gurgling streams from the melting glaciers and lavish green meadows. We spend 2 nights in this pretty village.

After paying tributes to the 500 years old Goddess Mathi temple in the Chitkul, we proceed to Sangla, a picturesque small town at 9050 feet high with the Baspa River flowing alongside that is sure to take your breath away. Sangla valley is widely acknowledged as one of the most beautiful valleys in the Himalayas. The valley offers never-ending sight of the Himalayan Mountains covered with dense cedar forest and many glacial streams gushing through the motorways.

Here, we visit the ancient Kamru Fort and Temple dedicated to the Goddess Kamakhya Devi. We also make a visit to the nearby village of Rakchham.

We set-off to apple-orchard dotted Kalpa, another gem of a village. Kalpa is said to be the winter abode of Lord Shiva. Truly, he couldnt have found a better place than this haven for himself with entrancingly majestic views of the Kinner Kailash and Jorkandan Peaks looming right above the village. We make a visit to the Buddhist monastery and the Hindu Narayan-Nagini temple here.

We then return to Shimla and thence to New Delhi.
