It is a very confusing place. Tirhan Valley, Gaushaini, Jibhi, Kullu district, Banjar are all nearby places. so be very careful if you do any booking. we got confused and there was nobody to guide us and so we got lost and had paid extra on the transportation.
The Traveller halted in Aut market. This was the pickup point for our Volvo. The bus was coming from Bhuntar. We had around 2hrs to spare so I decided to blog. The market is a general market. Nothing you can really shop from here. You would find guest houses, homes, grocery stores, tea stalls etc. No 'maal roads' or main markets to shop like tourist.We boarded the bus and left to go back to the city life reluctantly. Pandoh was the last halt (for dinner) we had before we reached ISBT Delhi.
3) Can book a Volvo or normal buses which will drop you at a place called Aut from there either you book a taxi or you need to wait for private or local buses.
Day 1 : Reaching TirthanWe reached aut, the next day early morning, and believe me....it was really cold... the view was to die for....on one side you can see the beas river flowing and on the other side you can see some hydro power plants being set up.Tirthan valley is an around 1.5 hours ride from Aut. Although there was no snow, it was really cold when we reached the camp site.The camp site, was situated next to the river and was very cosy. Located right beside the tirthan stream, you can just be lost and found at the same time.
As most of you might know, there is a full circuit one can do from Delhi to Delhi while visiting Spiti. There is one route that goes from Delhi to Manali to Kaza, and the other is Delhi to Shimla to Pooh to Kaza. While the Shimla route is longer, it is supposed to be easy on your back. Because the Manali road is well, hardly a road!
