Nako to Sumdo: On third day morning, we had breakfast at the bus stop and after a wait of four hours, we got into a military truck. The bus came later but overtook us at Chango and by the time, we reached Sumdo, the bus had already left for Tabo :(.Sumdo is the entry-point to Lahaul-Spiti. All the foreigners have to get the inner line permit to travel further into the Spiti valley or while exiting from the Spiti valley. A road from Sumdo goes to the border-point of Kaurik. While scoping out our options, we had delicious samosas at GERF canteen and were again lucky to get the lift from a family up to Tabo. During this whole journey, Spiti River was a constant companion.
