About

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.
