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. Sangla is close to Chhitkul and hotels and camps provide very good arrangement for living and are comparatively cheaper. 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.

This may be a rather cold and inhospitable area, but the scenery certainly is breathtaking. The pick-up gives us an idea of transports in this part of the country. The colours and contrasts are superb.

Excellent report from Chitkul. I am surprised with this fact about the expensive hotels in this region. Although I am not expert in this theme. This truck reminds me a camp of some mountain expedition.

I like very much this composition, the interaction between car and scenery is superb, the one adding interest and meaning to the other. The perspective of the car is effective, your angle has also made the most of light, creating a great arrangement of contrasting colours. The tight frame exalts the dynamism of the composition as well as its graphic quality and the strong impact of the colours. This scene looks like part of an adventurous trip. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a great day,
