Congratulations, if you have decided to visit Spiti Valley for your next vacation, as it a place unlike any other and not many people wake up and decide to plan for a visit there. If you have planned your route from Manali side, I doff my hat to you, as this route delivers some early scares. Most of the people who visit Spiti Valley chart their course from Shimla, go to Kaza via Nako and Tabo, and if they are interested, visit Komic - the highest village in the world and Chandrataal and then make their way to Manali via Batal and Rohtang. However, we did the opposite, as we had only six and a half days with us. Many people were skeptical about our tight time frame to cover all the places and the choice of one SUV and a motorcycle for the trip. However, we were determined to complete the loop and see some of the most stunning places in the world en route. Were there setbacks? Did we manage to see all the places as per the plan? Here is a brief of our tour to some of the most spectacular places on God’s green earth, right here in India.
Day 1- A slow progress from Chandigarh to Manali
