    Kinnaur trip
    Our vacation was totally worth, the time and money we spent on it, because we explored so many new places in six days like Narkanda, Bhima Kali temple, Hattu temple, Chitkul, Shimla mall road etc. We will always remember Innova crysta driver Mr. BHUPENDER (SONU JI) mob. no. -9816378229, 9817356899 as the person who knows everything about mountains. The knowledge and experience that he has gained are amazing, interesting facts and trivia about different places of interest. Each moment was joyful, and I am looking forward to the next time we see each other.

    Sonu Singh
    Sonu Singh, our driver for a 12-day family tour from Chandigarh to Kalpa, Sangla, and Chitkul, was a delight. From the start, he grasped our needs, ensuring a pleasant, comfortable, and enjoyable journey. Sonu's understanding nature and insightful guidance enhanced our experience. His caring, gentle, witty, and peaceful personality created a positive travel environment. Throughout our family trip, he exhibited remarkable patience, adding to the overall satisfaction. We appreciate his efforts and would gladly choose him again for any future visits to the same circuit. Sonu Singh's excellent service and patience made our family trip memorable.

Kinnaur is a dream destination for each one of us specially after watching the the iconic rock tunnel videos on internet. I always wanted to visit Kinnaur to experience the feeling to pass through the dangerous motorable roads.

Exploring Kinnaur Valley: Itinerary with Sarahan as base location
==============

If you see on google maps, from kharcham route diverges for Sangla and Kalpa. From Sarahan to Kharcham is around 65 kms but this 65 kms is not a straight road, mind you this comes under one of the dangerous motorable roads
So it makes no sense that one day we visit Chitkul and return to Sarahan and then some other day visit Kalpa. Bcoz those 65 kms upto Kharcham had to be covered again.

Sangla
=======
So we started from Sarahan around 7.30 in the morning, for Sangla and on the way booked a simple place for overnight. Also we talked to hotel owner and asked him to arrange a local taxi for Chitkul. Bcoz we decided not to drive upto Chitkul.

Sangla to Chitkul
================
After talking to couple of local taxi owners, we left for chitkul around 12 PM and by 2 PM, we reached. Chitkul is really a abeautiful place. standing at the last village of Indo Tibet border is a great experience in itself. We had lunch in the Akhri Dhaba , clicked some memorable pictures and by around 3:30 we were ready to move back.

Reckong Peo
=============
Next day we checked out,around 7 in morning and left for Kalpa. So we traveled towards Kharcham and from here route diverges. The road upto Kalpa was way better than anywhere else in Kinnaur. The total distance to cover was around 38 kms, by 8:30 AM we reached Reckong peo and checked into our hotel.

Reckong Peo – Kalpa – Reckong Peo
==================================
Now from reckong peop, kalpa was around 17 km. We checked online, there was a temple and a monastery we wanted to explore. From Reckong peo and Kalpa, we get beautiful view of Kailash. The road upto kalpa was also good, although full of steep turns and elevation gain. So we explored Narayan Nagini Temple , near by monastery and simply walked into the village, it was a beautoful place to be at. The kinner kailash in backdrop and Kalpa village filled with autum colors leaves, just made our day

Sarahan
=========
It was now time to return back to our hotel in reckong peo. Next day we traveled back to Sarahan, and spent rest of the week there.

Himalayan Trips LLP unprofessional travel agency and not worth to trust

We recently had trip to Vaishnodevi and Kashmir arranged through Himalayan trips. Hotel booking co-ordination from them is really poor. In Katra at the time of check in at hotel, we got to know that there is no booking for us and Himalayn trips is not aware of it. Due to this we had to wait almost for 2 hours after travelling 40 hours of train journey. Subsequently they asked to check in another hotel which was really poor. Due to this unnecessary time waste we couldn't complete our trip the way we planned. At every hotel, hotel guys were asking us money because Himalayan trips did poor coordination 1 more time and showed their service level and commitment towards customers. They are least bothered for your comfort and expectations. They asked us to pay to balance amount in employees account instead of companies account which shows their level of management.They are working in a very unprofessional manner. They even don't have courtesy and any manners to respond on their mistakes. If you want your trip free from any mishaps and bad vibes please never arrange your trip with Himalayan trips. At least I will not go with them in future and will not recommend others.Thank you.

We travelled to the Kinnaur region (Sarahan, Sangla, Chitkul, Kalpa) last week. This region is mesmerising beautiful with snow capped enchanting mountains. The karcham -sangla- chitkul Road is for the thrill seekers with expert driving skills. We went with Bhupender kumar (9816378229) who's a safe, experienced driver. He's knows this region very well, took us to local food joints and made our holiday memorable.
Advise for those planning their trip with local tour agents or drivers....Pls be clear with them, on the itinerary, cab rates (especially if you want AC for the entire trip) etc. or else, be prepared to shell out more than agreed along the way
