Chitkul Road Trip
The last inhabited village on the Indo-Tibetan border is Chitkul, around 569 kilometers from Delhi and 24 kilometers from Sangla and is famous for its sunsets, potatoes, apples and the incredible hospitality of the locals.
At 3450m, Chitkul is well over a few mountain tops in Himachal alone that makes it witness very cold winters during which the snow makes the inhabitants move to the lower regions of Himachal.
Chitkul is famously known for the quality of potatoes that are produced, they are one of the finest in the world. Situated on the bank of river Baspa, Chitkul is the first village of Baspa Valley and the last village on the old Hindustan-Tibet trade route and is also the last point in India that one can travel to without a permit.

It's been more than a year since I first travelled with Justwravel and now I plan my every trip with them only. Be it a 2 day trek or a week long road trip, they make sure the travelers experience the best of what itinerary has to offer, that too without burning a whole in your pocket. I would definitely recommend everyone to travel with Justwravel. :)
Camping experience couldn't get better than the one organized by JustWravel. The arrangement, the activities, the groups, the food, everything was just perfect. The packages are pocket-friendly and they take you to offbeat places. With them, it's not just travel.

It was a nice experiience with justwravel on my latest trip to chitkul.????.
Loved the chitkul tour, whether u want to go solo or with friends; Go for Justwravel. They are very friendly and things are well organized.
Their itinerary is well defined and the package is absolutely economic. Been to 3 trips with them, each with different set of people which delivered different set of life-long memorable experience. Couldn't have asked for more!!
This was my first trip with justwravel and I must say I can’t think of any complaints or negative points. Choosing right ppl to go with is as imp as choosing the destination . I went to chitkul village with justwravel with 5 other gals. Handling different sort of gals in a group is not soo easy ? but I must say the trip leader Nishant and mannu really tuk care of us. They paid attention to our minute little things. A big kuddos to the team of justwravel for making my travel experience worth remembering. ?
One of the best travel group I have travelled with.. thanks to Manu and Nishant for being the amazing trip leaders throughout the trip.. they made sure that we enjoy every bit of the trip.. whether it's hiking to ITBP check post or strolling through the Chitkul village or having a sip of amazing tea at India's last dhabha.. we did all of it.. I'm happy that I travelled to Chitkul with these guys.. :)
