Chitkul; The Quiet Village

The Quiet Village momentsatbay

Chitkul is a village in Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh on the banks of Baspa River. It is the first village of the Baspa Valley and the last village on the old Hindustan-Tibet trade route. The Indian road ends here. During winters, the place mostly remains covered with the snow and the inhabitants move to lower regions of Himachal. Potatoes grown in Chitkul are one of the best grown in the world and are very costly. It is also the last point in India one can travel without a permit.
