Day 1

It's been 5 long years I have been doing photography as this is the one thing that makes me feel alive and mountains have always given me the thrills that I wanted, so one-day going through a normal Instagram post I saw a picture and there it was my next destination that I'm going for sure " spiti valley ".

Far from my home with a deadliest road leading to the middle land between India and Tibet.

And I know this is going to be a most epic trip I'm going to take a solo.

Packed my bags with any planning I booked my bus from Delhi to Shimla 12 hour of dive and approx 350km and the next day I'll be in the region of Himalayas

Day 2

12 hour of overnight drive and here I'm in the beautiful valley of Himachal Pradesh, as I reached Shimla as expected to reach there. I planned not to waste a day by staying in Shimla and move forward towards my destination.

I was not sure that I'll get a bus from Shimla to reckong peo but luckily I catch the bus from Shimla it was 7 am in the morning and I was not feeling a single percent of tiredness from my overnight journey from Delhi to Shimla.

And the journey started again reckong peo here I come and 225km I have to cover in next 8hour as I'll reach peo at the time of sunset and if lucky will witness the magical sunset at the peak of Kinnaur Kailash and will be finally taking rest and overnight stay in peo .

Day 3

Day 4 Today is a special day as it will my last leg of the journey and I'll there, I'll in Spiti valley (my dream place) and today will be going to adventures too . why?

Deadliest road of the world is waiting for me to cross them.

5 am in the morning woke up early in my homestay close to the peo bus stand but there was a surprise waiting for me...." There is no bus going from peo to Kaza ( headquarter of Spiti ) I was depressed because I just can't wait anymore for spiti. But waiting for an hour turn to be good luck for me as many more travelers were waiting for the bus to Kaza...we all come to an idea and try to look for a sharing taxi operated by a local people from peo to Kaza.

And lucky it worked with a 7 another unknown travellers i was in a car which will be taking us all to kaza by the end of the day today 200km and 6 -7 hours of drive .

Day 4

Last day we finally made it Kaza in the evening starting from reckong peo in the early morning and it took almost a full day with scenery and view that is nowhere to found I found my self a decent homestay and I'm ready to take whatever Kaza has to offer me, roming in this beautiful town with mountain 360 views I had my dinner rush to homestay top for magical night.

Yes, magical night " with a thousand stars over my hear rising from behind the mountains there it was " milky way giving me goosebumps every time I saw it, with shooting stars and milky way above my head I fall asleep capturing it .

Day 5

Last day with a night that magical and cold I also booked a bike for myself to explore nearby villages, and that dream ride is about to happen so that rush wakes me up early and with full protection and my bike ready I was good to go.
First stop
Key monastery - hikkim - komic - kibber - langza and by the end of the day with lots of memory and adventures of a lifetime back to Kaza.
With a full day driving in the beautiful valley of spiti I should be tired right?
But I was not I had my dinner, take my camera out with me with a milky way over my head i spent my last night in kaza as next day in morning I'll be travelling back to manali with the most beautiful scenery route to travel in India.
And that's how i did it, my entire spiti valley trip solo in 8000 rupees.
