Chitkul is the most scenic village in Sangla Valley, easily accessible from Shimla, Delhi and Kalpa by bus. Its claim to fame is that it is the last inhabited settlement before the Indo China border, and was once a part of the trade route to Tibet. It offers several interesting treks and trails, including the black glacier trek.
I stayed here for a about a week and enjoyed the simple pleasures of mountain living. Here’s my journey in simple watercolor illustrations, done on location.
