Kibber Village: Next morning, we had breakfast and decided to hike Kibber. We found it quite challenging with the increasing height. We had to rely on hitchhiking and reached Kibber by 11 am; stayed at a guesthouse. A row of guesthouse cum hotels are located at the entrance of the village with few homestays further into the village.
After two nights stay at the Kibber Village, we left for Komic Village -Now considered as the highest inhabited village in Asia connected with a motorable road. Komic has a monastery, with some interesting collection of artifacts. The view is mesmerizing, and we ended up hiking up to 500 meters further up. This extracted the juice, and we just decided to camp at night in the open with the help from a local camp organizer. The village has zero network reception. It is vital to ensure vehicle pick-up if you are not traveling with your vehicle. Next morning, a Sumo picked us for Kaza. In Kaza, the first thing, we did was booking our seat on a shared taxi for Manali.
Next day, early morning, we left for Manali. Kaza to Manali is 200, and it takes approx. Twelve hours to cover the distance. After approx. 56km of drive, we reached Losar. Losar nestled between the mountains is the last major stopover after which the remoteness and vastness of Spiti Valley spellbound travelers. Villages between Kaza and Manali are lesser explored due to remoteness and the fatigue that engulfs a traveler; though Losar has few homestays and guesthouses. We had breakfast at Serchu Café and prepared ourselves for the wondorous beauty of the famous Kunzum pass. As we drove deeper into the valley, one can only see the snow, mountains, waterfalls and few vehicles on the road.
