“Once a year go someplace you’ve never been before”
– Dalai Lama
Let’s travel to Kinnaur and the mighty Spiti Valley this year. Let’s explore the magnificent mountains, thousand year old monasteries, slated roof villages, temples, frozen lakes, apple orchards and much more.
Kinnaur-Spiti loop, where River Spiti runs along as a constant companion, is often rated as one of the best self-drive routes in the world. The roads here have thrilled the four-wheelers, rallyists, motorcyclists, mountain bikers since time immemorial.
It is home to the most spectacular roads and to the beautiful and vast landscapes. Go on a journey that will excite you and go back with memories of your most adventurous holiday.
Register yourself and live your dream.

Trip starts on ___ in Shimla, where the adventurers will meet around afternoon at a resort for a cup of tea and chit chat.
Everyone will get to meet each other and to have “pre-journey” gossip.
We start from Shimla for the overnight stay toward a peaceful and beautiful place near Narkanda, called Thanedar (in Kotgarh valley). We stay overnight at the Deodar Cottage and have sweet dreams of the wonderful days ahead of us.
After an early breakfast, we start our journey toward Kinnaur District of Himachal Pradesh where we will be welcomed by narrow roads and beautiful landscapes, just as those you always dreamt of driving in.
We will reach Chitkul (Last Indian Village on Indo-Tibet boarder) and camp here for the night.
We leave from Chitkul and visit a very less travelled and extremely beautiful Nako lake. From there we will head towards the Spiti District of Himachal, famous for its never ending barren terrains and beautiful monasteries. We visit “Tabo monastery” the oldest monastery in the world and camp there for the night.
We start our day from Tabo and have a leisure drive where we spend time sightseeing and preparing ourselves for a little exhausting next day towards Chandertal.
We get to a hotel in Kaza and have a sound sleep to start early next morning.
We start early from Kaza toward one of the most beautiful and untouched passes in India, the ”Kunzum Pass,” on the way to which we’ll have glimpses of vast barren plateau and many villages with population of about 10 to 50 people per village. From Kunzum pass we head toward “the most amazing” Lake in Himachal Pradesh, the Chandertal Lake, which lies at an altitude of 4,300 metres. We camp there at the Lake side for the night.
From Chandertal we leave for Manali via Grumphu-Rohtang road, beauty of which need not to be mentioned. Once we reach Manali we will have a brief Manali tour and will go to bed with the memories of a lifetime that we have created in the past week.
