Photographer's Note

Chitkul is around 569 km from the National capital Delhi and 28 km from Sangla.This is the last Indian village on border with China.The road doesn't take you till the actual border,it closes around 90 km before it and then rest of the area is under the control of Indian Paramilitary force ITBP.There are wooden houses turned into hotels that can be found in Chhitkul, these hotels are a bit expensive and most of the tourist prefer to stay at Sangla and make a day trip to this place.While in Chhitkul make sure you carry adequate cash and petrol or diesel for your car as there is no ATM facility or fuel stations in this hilly area. There is also neither a clinic nor any hospital in this area and one has to travel back to Sangla for emergencies.Chitkul is very cold and windy and the road normally closes down around November after the first snowfall.
