Spiti-Manali adventure: The beauty of Chitkul

On day 3, 12th August 2021, we turned off the highway to get to Chitkul via Sangla. The road was quite terrible as it was just a dirt track. After a bumpy ride we came to the serene and beautiful village of Chitkul, the last village in India before we enter China.

The mountain ranges all around and the fast flowing Baspa River made for un-adulterated beauty. It was wonderful to sit by the flowing river and just walk along the paths with the mesmerizing sunset views.

After a nights halt we headed for Nako. The village of Nako is technically in the Kinnaur region but has all the characteristics of Spiti Valley. The road as we got back on to the highway was very good as it was maintained by the Border Roads Organisation. Old timers in our group said that the road along the Sutlej would be reasonably good but that when we reached the confluence of the Sutlej and Spiti rivers and drove along the Spiti river the road would be narrow and steep and in poor condition. As it turned out the road was recently tarred and in good condition till about a couple of kilometres to Nako.

The highlight of the day was the lunch we had at a little dhaba, the Sangam Khab Dhaba. An amazing location for a dhaba which you could easily miss as you drove through the bridge. We had a vegetarian thali as we soaked in the atmosphere around the sangam of the two rivers. The stark mountains were awesome.
