The road east from Sangla continues along the old India Tibetan Highway leading to Chitkul, the last village of India along this highway. Beyond lies the international border, and to its south east are the mountains and hinterland of the Gangotri national park. For a village that remains inaccessible during winter, Chitkul reflects a meeting ground of sorts of different cultures that cohabit these heights. The Hindu and Buddhist motifs overlap here, literally and figuratively.
Visible from Sangla and higher up along the slopes is the famed village of Kamru. The steep climb opens out into a remarkable courtyard that is flanked on one side by the Hindu temple and on the two side by the Buddhist temple structures. The religious space is freely shared here signified by the central pavilion with beautiful carvings. A small narrow path winds up the hill to the old fort of Kamru. The high terrace on which the fort stands offers views along almost all the directions. The temples and buildings inside the fort grounds are quite aged, some undergoing renovations now.
