Now that's something everyone would gladly signup for! Who doesn't love road trips, leaving all your city baggage to chill under the mountains? Here I present to you our exciting family road trip which started in Delhi, passing through Manali, Spiti, and Kibber, to name a few.
For almost eleven days in and out of it, checking in hotels and checking out. Thanks to my super brother, who took us all under his wings of planning and coordination all by himself, yeah!
The major highlight of the trip lies between the road to Nako village and Kaza, in Spiti valley. From Simla to Nako, almost eight-hour-long journeys took a toll on us, not because of the distance and timing, but the dangerously beautiful road. With a road barely broad enough to let one vehicle pass, it being craved into the steep mountains, driving through them at night with only the vehicle's headlight revealing the road. Complete darkness apart from the path of light paving the road ahead. I couldn't figure out the sky or the mountains nor the dangerously deep river bed on one side.
We reached Nako village at around 9.30 pm. Nako village was just out of Murakami 's dreamland., agriculture at the base of these peaks was breathtaking. My photography skills doesn't give justice to this place's beauty.
And from there, we were off to Spiti through the deserted roads, with the giants watching us over. If only they were wearing their winter white gown, but unfortunately, it was May.
