sangla-kalpa valley

I need help and advice for a 7 day itenary to kinnaur from shimla/delhi/ chandigarh from 28 mrach- 5/6 April.

I have looked at the various posts on the site and elsewhere and struggling to come up with a itenary as there are so many beautiful places and i was also hoping to do 2 or 3 single day treks or one 2/3 day trek in this region.

We can take flight and hire cars.

We would like advice on how to travel, place to break our journey and stay and trek suggestions

Any recommnedations regarding any drivers or company for the 7 day tour in the region is also welcome.

look forward to hearing from people who have travelled and hiked in this region please t

Dear Nrai,

You need to go to Shimla from New Delhi. And from Shimla, you will have to go up to Sarahan, from where, you need to go to Reckong Peo, which is the district capital of Kinnaur. So, two days go in that and while returning, again another two days. Now, you are left with three days. So, the best thing to do would be to go to Chitkul from Reckong Peo and trek there in the nearby mountains. The treks are really good; there is a trek alongside the river. You have to carry water while trekking. Also, you have very good hotels in Chitkul; more than 25. Better to hire a car from Shimla for the entire trip. Please tell me if you need any other clarifications.

This itinerary look perfect @Ashis ji ! I am planning a trip in June 2nd week with family. We were planning to drive down from Delhi but the roads look quite dangerous after Sarahan. Would it be better to hire a taxi from Shimla or Sarahan for the whole trip ? How much would it cost approximately and should I arrange for it beforehand ?

Your valuable advice is highly appreciated. Thanks !

June will have lot of rains. Also, it is better to have a taxi from Shimla as after Shimla it will be difficult to get good transport and travel operators. Also, though the images on the Internet might look scary after Sarahan, the roads are really good and there are earthmover machines along the entire route, who remove any rocks or obstructions as soon as they fall.
