Ride to Heaven- Chhitkul


Chhitkul, is no more of a surprise to travelers these days. The small Himalayan village which is at a height of 12k feet, washed by Baspa river all the way down, is no less than heaven. A mere local population of 1500, along with few Israelis, Europeans (staying over months) and frequent daring travelers, make this village. People of this village are very much friendly and cooperative. 

"Once a local shop owner offered me his own food, as it was too late on my part to ask for dinner"
