Day 1, 5th June: Delhi to Narkanda/Kotgarh

Day 3, 7th June: Chitkul to Kalpa | Stay in Kalpa/Rampur
Day 4, 8th June: Rampur to Shimla/Nearby village
Day 5, 9th June: Back to Delhi

Have booked accommodation in Chitkul for a night. Is it worth extending it for one more night, given the plan is to reach back to Delhi by Sunday evening on 9th.

Also, have read about Echor stays in Narkanda. Is it a nice place (looking for budget accommodation)? / Suggestions welcome for stay

Also, not really keen on visiting Shimla town, what are nice places to click photos around Shimla with accommodation options, preferably on the way to Delhi.

Will be traveling on my bullet with another friend.

Anyone else planning for a trip on this timeline?

Hi,

Please find below reply point wise:

1) Chitkul is worth the time. So depending on your preference you can extend a day at chitkul.
2) I stayed at Sara Hotel in Narkanda last year. It is a decent place with a good view of the Himalayas from the Balcony. Check it out once if not place of stay is not finalized yet.
3) Shogi and Narkanda(both sides) offer a good view for photography.

Regards

Abhik Banerjee

Avoid Shimla altogether. Take the Chail road. stay at Chail. If you have time then try the Kalka - Shimla ( or Shimla to Kalka) toy train. it is a world heritage train and a unique experience by itself. of course you need to spare a day for the whole experience.

Hi,

I just returned from Chitkul this Monday.

Took the shimla - narkanda - rampur - karcham- sangla - chitkul route to and fro.

The roads are super fine expect for few patches till Karcham. Our route was a diversion to the one you are planning towards sangla. That road is in bad shape and it became tough on bike with narrow lanes and gravel all around.

Until karcham you will find tarmac in good conditions. All the best!
