Chitkul:  The Last Motorable Village

By Pamela Mukherjee

Chitkul is easily accessible By Bus or Public Transport. You can easily take an HRTC bus from Delhi, Chandigarh or Shimla to Chitkul. 

How to Reach

The lack of a mobile signal in this hamlet, makes you disconnected from the world and complements your connection with the surroundings. 

Nature View 

The best time to visit Chitkul is during the summer. If you want to visit it during winter you must prepare for it as winters are extremely cold.

When To Reach

Chitkul has many places to stay as per your budget. From Luxury to resort to Homestays , chitkul is perfect for everyone. 


You should walk down to the banks of the Baspa and reawaken your soul by dipping your hands in the glacial water while enjoying the natural view. 


Chitkul has three temples ; the oldest is 500 years old. The entire compound is beautiful and a must-visit for experiencing the wooden architecture.

Adrenaline junkies, let’s huddle & Wait! Chitkul is the start of many breathtakingly easy, medium, and difficult treks around the area.


There are many dhabas splattered across Chitkul’s and one can choose whatever they want. Momos & Thupka are easily available.


It is better to visit Kalpa first because it helps in the acclimatization and sleeping directly at the altitude of Chitkul may result in AMS issues.

Chitkul is a must visit place and one should visit atleast once in their lifetime....
