We had to come back almost 20km back to take the turn to sangla, as missed the right turn. Basically I did saw the bridge but it looked as if going to dam, which actually it is, but you just take another left and right turn to go towards sangla.

Initial part of the road to sangla was bad, almost broken. But scenery kept getting better and better as we moved ahead. Pink and green colors were the theme of that day.

we took hundreds of stops till Sangla. Initially our target was to reach Chitkul and stay there, but with so many break we only managed to reach sangla by 4:00 Pm. So we decided to break for the day in Sangla, and what a good decision it was.

First we tried our luck with pwd guest house, using the influence of Vinod but unfortunately all rooms were already occupied that night due to some visit of engineer.

anyways caretaker was already influenced by Vinod, ran out to find some good accommodation for us and he got a very good deal in a hotel just in front of GH. As we entered the room, view from the window was ultimate paisa vasool. and as we climbed to the roof of the hotel, we were just amazed at the 360 degree view of pink, green white colors.

we ordered some unlimited numbers of paranthas and unlimited supply of chai, which kept coming till pretty late night.

As I said colors were getting better and better causing so many breaks

Staying at sangla that day instead of going to Chitkul was good decision, after two two days of roller coster ride we got some time to sit back and enjoy the views.

One of the plus point for this hotel against the PWD GH was that we had direct access to roof.

and room had TV, my favorite

We decided to camp on the roof instead of room as the views were just unavoidable. we stayed till midnight till it got really cold.

Unfortunately we missed the sunset due to some heavy cloud movements. And because of that we got up pretty early next morning to get the sunrise which was also not very interesting due to wrong side of sunrise.

Few evening shots from roof of the hotel

Thumbs up Re: Super Fast trip to Sangla and Chitkul

Wow Rajiv, nice shots and amazing gears!

How did I missed this TL earlier! Chitkul looks very much different from what I saw a month back. When I went there was no snow on the hill slopes! I am hooked now, go ahead and complete it.

Cheers!

our drive from sangla towards chitkul was full of stops almost at every turn. drive was fun, roads were ok. But weather was bad and cloudy. sangla to chitkul has lots of small village on the way and if time permits its worth taking on of the roads and drive towards the village. but we were little less on time.

drive from sangla to Rakcham was event less except of those beautiful view at every corner
