2 comments

Distance covered 510 kms

Time taken 18 hrs

 

Hi guys, This is my first blog in the community. I plan to blog this in teambhp however my registration had so many issues, Still there is no proper response from them. Hence using fasbeam space.

I am Bala from Chennai, Love to drive, Love to explore, Love to eat, I am a pro traveler and done many 1500+ km long trips.

Some three months back we were planning a trip to Himachal (probably its Shimla/ Manali) which comes to the sight in Himachal.

I will do the trip itinerary for all of my trips, So when i checked for the possibility to cross the Rohtang pass without permit, there comes the Spiti valley.

 

Spiti valley - I have no words to describe the beauty!

Searched... Searched... Searched... a lot, In YouTube, In TeamBHP, In every possible sites. Even faisal has done Spiti adventure trip conducted by Mahindra.

 

So itinerary finalized

Day 0 Chennai - Delhi

Day 1 Delhi - Rampur

Day 2 Rampur - Sangla Chitkul

Day 3 Sangla - Tabo

Day 4 Tabo - Dhankar - Pin Valley - Kaza

Day 5 Kaza - Hikkim - Komic - Langza - Kibber - Chicham - Kaza

Day 6 Kaza - Kunzum - Chandrataal

Day 7 Chandrataal - manali - amabala

Day 8 Amabala - Delhi - Chennai

 

After so many suggestions booked a Scorpio from MyChoize for 24k (unlimited kms 80 kmph speed locked) and booked flight tickets in Indigo.

And booked the hotels for day 1 - day 6, Since we have no idea where we will be in day 7, Haven't booked any hotels.

 

It was the first flight for my girl friend and 2 of my friends, So they were very eager for the flight experience. It was the last flight to Delhi by 22.35 hence it is full. Reached Delhi around 2.30 am

 

Got Scorpio from MyChoize by 3.00 am, Very dedicated staff, I booked for a luggage carrier but there is no luggage carrier in the car given. Still it was a brand new Scorpio with 4800 kms clocked, so am happy with the car I got and we squeezed all the luggage in the back.

 

We left Delhi airport around 3 am and escaped from Delhi in minutes. Still not sure where to take permit for haryana and punjab, Finally found and got the permit online for all three states.

I advice you to take one day permit for haryana and punjab (100₹ per day), if you are just passing through the state. Since without any knowledge i paid 1000 for haryana permit for 10 days :(

 

Had a Punjabi breakfast before entering into ghats road around 9 am. We blocked rooms in Rampur which is around 500kms from Delhi (approx 13 hrs drive). So here comes the struggle from my trip mates, mountain sickness starts :D

 

Finally reached Rampur around 9 pm (12 hrs drive extended to 18 hrs)

 

 

Queen of hills

Welcome on board, beautiful story, going to Spiti always evokes some sort of happiness for me, specially the part where there is no network so you can completely disconnect and enjoy the beauty of the place.
