Hey Jenil, Spiti is always better to explore completely which would demand a sweet 8 days to complete the circuit .... You won't be able to witness snow in month of aug and September, but you can see snow clad mountains far .... I had done spiti in the first week of August this year and felt that's the best time to completely explore .... The circuit would be Shimla - Narkanda - Jeori - Kinnaur - Sangla - Chitkul - Sangla - Reckong peo - Nako - Gue Village - Tabo - Dhankar - Pin valley - Kaza - Kee - Langza - Komic - Hikkim - Kibber - Gete - Tashigang - Losar - kunzum pass - Chadertal - Batal - Chattru - Gramphoo - Rohtang pass - Marhi - Manali ..... Just read about each place on Google and i bet you that you will decide to explore each and every mentioned place here fully ... Happy Travelling Bro!!!
Hi Jenil, if you want to explore full Spiti valley you should head there in the month of June - July. Most of the places are not accessible during winters, Chandratal and Kunzum Pass closed in October itself, rest of the isolated areas like Losar and Mudh village remains closed during winters. Also the probability of roads getting closed because of snow is very high during winters.
Hey Jenil, Exploring Spiti Valley completely will take you a good 10-12 days if you wander around the trails of mountains to reach places. On the contrary it would take about 5-6 days if you have a vehicle.
The Chandratal lake's road is closed due to snowfall and landslides for now so before heading forward just gather info about the roads.
Though the road of Rohtang pas is closed a long but alternative route can be taken via Shimla to RecongPeo and then to Spiti.
Spiti in winter is the best they say but do check with the hrtc if the buses are running. Happy exploring!:)
Spiti needs good 10 days if you want to explore it not rush . 1. Delhi to Narkanda ( first day of journey makes it long ) I skipped Shimla considering you have upgraded from shimla tourist to Spiti Adventure traveler. 2. then Narkanda to Sangla , explore Sangla and chitkul ( in hurry then leave next day , however I would suggest two days ) 3. Sangla to Rekong peo ( one day enough to witness the mighty kinnaur kailash and kalpa ) 4. peo to Nako ( stay in Nako and enjoy the nako lake and Nako monastery ) 5. Nako to gue mummy and then to tabo ( one day )
can take one day halt in tabo 6. tabo to dhankar and then take de route to mud village ( one day ) 7. mud village to kaza , go visit langza , hikkim and komic 8. next day go to key monastery ( at least spend 4 hours to know the culture and heritage ) then go to either kibber or gete village and explore the overnight stay . and chicham bridge 9. next day can visit rangrik village further go towards losar plains and towards chandratal 10. chandratal to Manali 11. Manali to Delhi these are the places you could explore in spiti circuit , but if you want to be tourist take selfie and rush , yes you can squeeze it to 8 days . that ways you will miss on places and I doubt many people once traveling through these treacherous roads will ever desire to return
September to mid-October: The autumn season make Spiti absolutely colorful with lush green trees, orange leaves, aqua clean waters and white snow in the background, making the valley, a beauty. The mornings and evenings are quite cold with temperatures going to 2-3 degree Celsius while the days are pleasant. Do not forget to pack woolens. If you are a snow-lover, this might not be an ideal time for you. Try to confirm the weather conditions before making plans as sometimes Kunzum pass starts getting snow as early as September.
