I was born in the late ’80s in a beautiful town of Kerala. Unlike the current kids, I never had to spend time on smartphones and laptops, browsing social networks. Instead, I spend my childhood reading books and climbing trees. Mountain stories of Ruskin Bond and other Indian writers made me fall in love with the Himalayas and the dream of visiting the mountains was not more than a fairytale for a boy who lived his entire childhood in a small town in far south. I moved to Delhi in 2016 and my Himalayan adventures started. In this post, I would like to share my recent escapade to the charming Chitkul Village. Delhi to Rampur Bushahr Like all the people who live in Delhi, I booked an overnight sleeper bus from ISBT Kashmiri Gate. My first plan was to book a ticket to Shimla and then to Reckong Peo. However then I changed it to Rampur, which is a small town on the way to Reckong Peo from Shimla. I prefer to book HRTC buses as they tend to reach the destination earlier than the expected time. After we boarded the bus from Delhi, tired with the packing, chaotic rush to take the metro and wondering how the escalators of Kashmere Gate metro station can handle this much people; I slept immediately after we cross the mountain of garbages in Gazipur, which was not a pleasant sight. I woke up the next morning and we were crossing a beautiful mountain near Narkanda. White patches of snow were still seen in the shades of trees and hiding from the sun. My travel companion was my younger brother and we reached Rampur in the morning at about 9: 30.
