As the day progressed, I found myself seated by the Baspa, letting its gentle murmur become the soundtrack to my moments of contemplation. The tranquility of Chitkul whispered stories of a simpler way of life, providing a respite from the bustling world left behind. The evening sky painted hues of pink and gold, and as the first day in Chitkul came to a close, the stage was set for the magic that the following day held—a promise of deeper exploration and the continuation of the enchanting tale of ‘Two Days in Chitkul.’

Before the wheels even touched the Chitkul terrain, preparations for a cozy retreat were set in motion. A conversation with a cab driver in Reckong Peo had led me to the doorstep of Himalayan Tribe Hostel and Cafe, a homestay that promised not just shelter but an experience steeped in local warmth. Upon arrival, the owner, a gracious host, welcomed me with the charm of the mountains. A casual chat about prices turned into a delightful agreement – “Just come, and we’ll settle it later.” A gesture that resonated with the spirit of Chitkul, where time moves a bit slower, and trust is a currency in abundance. Stepping into the homestay, a few rooms were presented, each offering its own charm.
