If you wish to go to Spiti, you must begin by carrying no images and expectations -- this will let you come back with a backpack full of your own set of unforgettable experiences. And what a great set of experiences it is: the terrain, the views, the weather and the food leave a lasting impact on the sternest of souls!
Spiti I think, makes us pause to wonder, to find the parts of ourselves we’ve lost while rushing between traffic lights, trapped in glass and steel edifices, chasing the undefined. It helps us hear our thoughts above the din and sometimes, the sound of a voice within.
So, as my younger sister completed her board exams i decided to take her for a trip with me, so that later on she can go own her own.
Ours was a 8-day trip starting from Chandigarh via manali. I told my sister, to observe things by herself and see what and how it is to travel, travel alone. This helps us bond with a new set of people who share our hobbies and interests. In all fairness, taking friends along might even kill it for you.
