    Just a few more queries .. how is the road from Shimla to Chitkul? I mean, is it like one-way or narrow or 2-way / sufficiently wide? Asking as this would be my first time driving on that road. I did drive from Pune to Shimla (and back) way back in 2010, but not beyond Shimla. Any other tips / suggestions that you would like to provide for driving on these roads?

    Appreciate your help. Thanks.

    The roads for Shimla to Chitkul is a mixture of Average and Bad roads. Roads are generally OK till Ramgarh. Although you can consider it one way most of the part but passing or crossing other vehicles is generally not a problem.

    Cheers !!

    The road upto sarahan is ok. After that some bad stretches upto Wangtoo. Karcham to chitkul is narrow.

    Enjoy the himalayas and ride✌
