My husband had one of his strange ideas this summer. He burst into the family room announcing that our family would travel this summer to Sangla valley. Now when you are travelling with a three year old you don’t really think of going to Sangla valley. You actually don’t think beyond a resort or a beach. So my instant reaction was a full on NO. As a mom I was concerned about the tough road conditions and the hassles of managing a 3 year old and her food tantrums in a remote place. But the idea of staying in tents and staying a stone’s throw away from the Himalayas sounded irresistible to the traveller in me.
OurÂ experience atÂ Kinnaur :Â
Kinnaur has managed to remain a quiet spot- unlike most bustling tourist destinations, primarily due to its poor road conditions, unpredictable weather and very few places for accommodation for visitors. Also the landslides make the place even more inaccessible. But Kinnaur proved me wrong and welcomed us with wonderful weather. My 3- year old daughter was fascinated by the picturesque landscape and loved looking out of the window.
We stayed in Kinnaur for 7 days and this is pretty much what we did during our stay.
DAY 1-Â Waking up to a beautiful sunrise.
Admiring the flower valley at Hatu Peak.
Observing animals grazing in the meadows.
Spotting rare birds on the way.
DAY 2-Â Exploring the remote village on foot.
Meeting the locals.
AdmiringÂ the snowy mountains fromÂ our tents.
Making new friends.
DAY 4-Â Finding our quiet picnic spot at the banks of Bapsa river in Chitkul (the last village at Indo-Tibet border).
Inventing our ownÂ games down by the river side.
Learning the ancient art.
A visit to the trout fish farm.
DAY 7 -Â Chasing butterflies at Chail gardens.
Stopping to smell the flowers and saying our goodbyes to this beautiful town.Â
