A perfect place for exploring on foot or go fishing in Baspa River. Embark on small trek originating from every nook and corner of the village leading to various peaks guarding the village like soldiers for thousands of years or sip a steaming hot tea at a small tea stall/dhaba called Hindustan Ka Akhri Dhaba. Much of the inner village can be walked without any trouble; however, you need to have some strength in your lungs and legs in order to explore higher, uneven reaches and skinny sidewalks.
If that’s a problem, just take few steps down the valley, take a small leap to sit on a river rock and dip your feet in cold water and marvel at wonderful creations of the Mother Nature.
How to Travel
Bus: Operated by Himachal Road Transport Corporation, an HRTC bus runs between Reckong Peo and Chitkul. You can board that bus at Sangla or Karcham and enjoy an adventurous ride through narrow, curving road to the picturesque valley full of natural scenery all around.
Taxi: Taxis need to be hired at Sangla, because this place is virtually traffic-free, hence chances of getting a taxi here are slim.
Just a few meters away you can explore the history and legacy, drink wine and relax. You can wander the hills or be lulled by waterfalls or soothing sound of blue water flowing down the Baspa valley. If you have time, the attractions can keep you mesmerized for full 2 days.
