Stashed away disguised in the boundless expanses of the bumpy Himalayas, a miniature hamlet Chatru emerges like an oasis in between the high altitude and cold desert of Spiti in Himachal Pradesh. It lies further in Spiti valley which is about 85 km from Manali. Chatru has a population of about 120 and is at a height of 11,100ft.It is a stopover for people going to Kaza in Spiti Valley. This small village only has three dhabas and Chandra’s Dhaba is the place for climbers. The temperature would drop to about 2 – 3 degree Celsius in the night, but mornings were cool and bearable.
