Kinnaur is probably one of the most beautiful places you can find in Himachal Pradesh. I took 4 friends out on a drive to Chitkul, that probably all of us will remember for a lifetime.
I hope you get a chance to see this beautiful place!

Taranda dhank- An engineering marvel in the cliff of death
The road to heaven is a difficult one! Taranda dhank Semi tunnel
A hell of a welcome gate! Notice the road is all gravel.
Toiling in the sun- It really looked like the mountain was sweating!
The mighty Himalayas
About 14 kms short of Sangla. What a stunning road!
Standing tall- the peaks of Kinnaur
Warm Kinnauri smile- A villager lit up our tired faces with his smile!

The flags that are everywhere
Incredible Himalayas. The view on the left, enroute Chitkul
The glorious mountains of the himalayas!
The infinitesimal size of these mountains makes you wonder.

Not a bad place to be, this. Another 40 kms of trekking leads to the Indo-Chinese border
It’s an astonishing place and a beautiful road, but it takes a toll on your car. 4×4 would’ve helped!
