We got up a bit late and left for Swarghat. The journey was going to be long. We took a few pics of our Hotel and left for Swarghat.

The road was full of twists and turns. The weather was fully overcast, rainy and we were in the clouds on many occasions. The weather was magical. We had to have lunch at 5‘ish as there was no Restaurant on the way. The driver left us alone and did his lunch at some place where no one would dare to.

We finally had lunch at 5.30pm and then continued our journey to Swarghat. We clicked some breath taking pics of the clouds, mountains and the sun setting with some extra-ordinary cloud formations.

Finally we reached our Hotel (We had not done booking so we booked the hotel then and there) Mount View. We had dinner, watched TV and went to sleep.

Day 25: 10th September – Swarghat – Chandigarh – Mumbai:

This was the last day of our extraordinary trip! We were now really longing to come back with some extraordinary photographs & memories from our trip! We were eager to come back to Mumbai & we didn’t click much pictures on our last day as we felt that Chandigarh was too beautiful to be shot with just a few pics on our way to the Airport.

We plan to come back to Chandigarh again for a proper coverage the Art Pixel Photography way! We do hope that you guys have loved the pics we clicked as much as we have! Do drop in your comments below…we would love to hear from you guys in the comments section below!

Here is a Slideshow version of the above pics.…

After getting up, we had breakfast and headed for Sarahan. Sarahan is located at a diversion from Chandigarh that goes on top. Sarahan is a base camp and housing of many Militia. We reached Hotel HPTDC Sri Khand which is owned and managed by HP Govt.

We were a bit tired and thought of resting in the hotel the remaining day. We watched TV, had dinner and went to sleep.

The view from our camp was simply breath taking overlooking the mountains and pine trees. This place had a lot of monitor himalayan lizards. It also had a camp fire. Their garden was well maintained.

We clicked a few nature macro flower photos and then went back to our camp. We watched movie for some time and then we left for chitkul lake. Chitkul lake is in Chitkul Village and its the last village of India.

The road from Sangla to Chitkul is extremely picturesque and full of lush greens. Its one of the most beautiful places in Himachal.

After the visit to the lake, we were very hungry as we had not had lunch and hence we stopped by at Rupin River View Hotel for some snacks and we got some outstanding food there.

We then headed back to our camp, had dinner, watched movie and went to sleep.

We got up early, clicked a few pics of ourselves and left for Sangla as it was going to be a long journey. Soon we got stuck on the way due to a landslide.

We were stranded for hours there. We decided to have lunch in the meanwhile. We took a back turn and searched for a hotel nearby. It was a hotel owned and managed by the Military – Om Hotel & Restaurant in Pooh.

We had heavy meal – Thali there and then again reached the same spot of landslide hoping that we would be free by now but unfortunately the work was still going on. We watched a movie in the car on our Macbook Pro to pass some time. Finally at 5.45pm (from 12.30pm) we were freed from the landslide work.

It was a bit dark and by now we would have already reached our next camping place. On our way we documented and captured quite a few pics and especially videos! On the way our car also had got punctured. There was no Car Puncture Repair shop on the way so we could not get the punctured tire repaired on the way.

It was quite risky as it was very dark and the road was extremely bad. We then halted on the way at Hotel Dev Bhoomi Regency for Dinner as it was very late evening and our chances at getting dinner at our camp was looking difficult.

After having Aloo Parantha again with one of the most pathetic veg dishes – aloo palak, we then proceeded to our camp. It was located downhill quite a few turns. The road was extremely narrow and bad.

After reaching, we were super glad that our camp had got an attached washroom and also a power point!!!…

We got up a bit early and left for Nako. On the way we 1st saw Dhangkar Gonpa. It’s also a Monastery located at quite a good height. We clicked a few candids on our way uphill. Dhangkar is one of the 5 major monasteries of Spiti and is in imminent danger of collapsing.

This 1000 year old Gonpa has been recognised by the World Monument Fund as one of the 100 most endangered sites in the world. Next, we visited the Tabo Monastery. Tabo Monastery is one of the most beautiful and very unique and different monasteries that you will come across and hence its a must visit.

It has a sandstone feel and is very different from other Monasteries. Outside this monastery is a German Bakery. We took a Chocolate Ball & Cinnamon & Chocolate Croissant from there and headed for Nako. On the way we came across many hilly and mountaineous areas which even resembled like Moonland in patches.

We finally reached Nako. We were hungry and before reaching our camps, we thought of having lunch outside. We went to a Hotel – Reo Purguil. The food was quite good there! We had Cashew Curry & Paneer in Indian Masala and we liked the food there.

From there we proceeded to our camp. The camp is extremely good, with quite nice facilities however we wanted to stay in a guest house so that we could get a power point to keep our batteries charged and hence we exchanged our camp for Guest House.

The only problem was that the guest house was located at quite a good distance and the location was a bit weird but beautiful. It was situated just above the Nako Lake.…
