I liked the lush look of Sangla.
Stayed at HPSEB's guest house. I had visited long ago and there was no other accomodation there except the camp organised by Banjara travels.

I would suggest Rockcham. Accomodation in Rupin River View. Rockcham is a place between Sangla and Chitkul.

You can find accomodation in Sangla, Raksham(14kms from Sangla) and Chitkul. Chitkul has a great view of the high mountains and the baspa river (i would prefer staying there). Also, at Raksham you have cool river side camping lodges available, you can try them.

I booked at sangla this time, found kalpa is easier to go from sangla rather than from chitkul.

Chitkul over Sangla

I would highly recommend you travel both places. A really nice idea is to walk from Sangla to Chitkul. It's quite a long walk and will take you all day, but it's well worth it. All you have to do is head East along the main road for about 20kms or so.

Accommodation is no issue at all. There are plenty of guest houses in both towns, although if you arrive in Chitkul during the low season, don't expect to see any other tourists and some guest houses may be closed for the Winter season. The people are friendly enough though, and you can find a place to stay even during this time.

Old Chitkul circa 1996

I drove down to Chitkul, July of 1996. The road from Wangtu branching off to Sangla and Chitkul, was mud paved, it was raining and it was dusk, hairy ride to say the least. 2 waterfalls and fast mountain streams cut the road across a few places. One of our frineds got stuck and had to be retrieved using help from the Border Roads folks who came in from Sangla. Remember there were no cell phones folks and we walked the distance from Chitkul to the BRO camp outside Sangla, at night!!

Chitkul had only a 2 room PWD rest house and a tented camp (where we stayed) with about 6 tents right on the edge of the drop to the Baspa.

I wonder how much Chitkul must have changed now! Planning a similar trip next year August going upto Leh and back..
