Chitkul: A nature lovers paradise! May 07, 2008
I am here sharing a little of my experience that I had, alonwith some of the pictures that I took in the Himalayan mountainous village of Chitkul,this very beautiful Tibetian village situated at a height of almost 3500 metres is very close to nature and being the very last human habitation on the Indian front makes it even more special in a way. There are about 600 people living there in all,mostly Tibetian,and a school which attracts one's attention Tucked away in the south-eastern corner of Himachal Pradesh lies the Sangla Valley, part of the region of Kinnaur. The Valley, also known as the Baspa Valley, has been called the `most beautiful valley in the Himalayas’. Although the indignant residents of countless other valleys across the mountains may disagree, there is definitely some justification for the claim.

Stretching for 95 km, the Sangla Valley is watered by the Baspa river, which meets the Satluj at Karcham, and by several smaller streams and springs. The first 18 km of the valley are fairly narrow, with cedar, chilgoza pine and bhojpatra trees covering the slopes on either side. At Kupa, however, the valley opens up and widens into an unforgettably lovely vale, dotted with a pretty-as-a-picture villages, right up to Chitkul, beyond which habitation is almost nil.

I always want to get back there ever since I set my foot for the first time in Chitkul. What do you think?
