Chilling Out in Kibber

Kibber is known as the highest village (4270M) with a motorable pass in the world. Gone are the days when you have to probably trek or hire a donkey, horse or a yak to get here. There’s now a bus that goes here daily from Kaza (about an hour of travel or less).

We heard about Kibber from our fellow travellers that we met in Tabo and we’ve decided to spend a few days in this town as well.

Kibber is a very small town and there’re no shops and only a few guesthouses. We stayed in a guesthouse run by a local family. We also met in the same guesthouse the travellers that we kept on meeting in various places in Himachal Pradesh.

There’s nothing much to do in Kibber but to enjoy nature and hike the various hills. It’s so serene and quiet and we spent most evenings having dinner with our fellow travellers while exchanging travel stories.

Kibber is one of the small villages that I’ve been to that I really really like. Partly because the people that I’ve travelled with in Kibber are a good bunch of people and the family that runs the place that we stayed in are very friendly too.

Anyway, here are some pictures that I took in Kibber.

The best time to visit Kibber would probably be around June to July when it’s not very cold. But don’t leave your jackets behind as it’s still quite cold up there.

Have a safe trip!


  1. […] stopped at Kaza twice, the first one was en route to Kibber and the second one was en route to Manali. The town itself has guesthouses and restaurants just in […]

  2. […] followed the road until the first stupa that marks the entrance to the village of Kibber and started climbing up ’til we saw the wooden electrical poles that they’ve told us […]

  3. […] Lamayuru is another village suggested to us by another traveller we met in Kibber. […]
