5 months back when I was planning for Spiti in May'2021 I had no idea about the place. First I did my basic research in Google & Youtube then I contacted some friends from Himachal to plan my itinerary. My criteria was to explore Spiti which will not include Kinnaur & Lahaul. As I want to explore those region in different times. After finalizing my base itinerary I contacted a local guy from the valley & expressed my wish to explore Spiti. But from April situation got worsen due to Covid 2nd wave and I have to postposed my plan. After 2months, July 1st week I contacted him again to check whether tourists are back or not. So decided to complete my long pending wishlist. literally in no time he arranged everything for me, specially home stays in those offbeat areas which is very difficult to arrange from our own. We stayed in different village homestays like Mudh, Dhankhar, Maneyongma, Langza, Losar along with Kaza on very first day for acclimatization. Also visited many other villages while travelling like Chicham, Key, Lallung, Komik, Hikkim, Kibber, Guling, Hal etc. 100 surgical masks, Couple of N95, Sanitizer Spray, RT-PCR, disposable bed sheet etc was newly added travel companion thanks to Covid-19. As per my request I got the one of the most experienced driver to accompany with us. Travel during monsoon is always bit risky in Himalaya, but thanks to driver ji we never faced any difficulties during our travel & successfully executed my travel research regarding Spiti from past couple of months. Last but not least Spiti Locals, Cuisines & Culture are as beautiful as the valley. So whenever planning to visit Spiti, don't make it on hurry. Try to spend more time in those villages and interact with locals. You will definitely find more spirit of Life. Points to be noted while travelling to Spiti(any season), try to keep one or two buffer day(s). We had blessings of God that we didn't need to use it in our trip and kept praying for good weather and road condition throughout the trip.
