Lahaul & Spiti :Road Trip

spiti

For Bookings Call/Whatsapp on[masked] SPITI Heaven for Riders, Photographers, Trekkers, Poets, Writers and many more, Spiti is one places which cannot be described in words. You have to visit this region to believe the beauty it can offer. A variety of Lakes, Monasteries, Glaciers and wildlife, it offers a perfect off city destination to search your soul. Spiti is 7000 sq km of snow-topped mountains and high-altitude desert, punctuated by tiny patches of greenery and villages of whitewashed houses clinging to the sides of rivers and meltwater streams. As in Zanskar and Ladakh, Tibetan Buddhism is the dominant religion in both Spiti and Lahaul, though Hinduism is prominent in lower Lahaul. Some Lahauli temples encompass both religions. Lahaul and Spiti are perfect locations for nature lovers and trekkers too. Located at an altitude of 3340 m in the north eastern corner, these are the two remote villages of Himachal Pradesh. Before these two districts were combined, the Lahaul capital was Kardang and Dhankar was the capital of Spiti. But now, these are spread over an area of 13835 sq. km and as per 2001 census, the total populations of these districts were recorded around 33,224. The breathtaking snow capped hills and the craggy beauty of these regions lure the travelers. Lahaul and Spiti are two isolated Himalayan valleys of Himachal Pradesh that lie on the Indo-Tibet border. A beautiful land of captivating Buddhist art and culture- Lahaul is distinguished by inflicting mountains and glaciers while the vegetation, climate and the landscape of Spiti are similar to that of Tibet. That's why the village of Spiti is also popular as 'Little Tibet'. Route Delhi (7 June in evening we will start ) Narkanda (8 June) Sangla (9 & 10 July) Tabo (11 July) Kaza (12 & 13 July) Manali (14 July) Delhi (15 July) Day 1 Start from Delhi in the evening Delhi To Narkanda ( 10 hours / 500 KM) we will start our journey towards our first halt at Narkanda, Shimla will be a tea break spot so that you don’t miss this charming city before we leave for our night halt spot. Night Stay : Narkanda Narkanda has a mythological significance. Its history dates back to the days of the Mahabharata, when, as myth holds it, the Pandavas resided in the hills of this town during their exile. In the recent history, the town was ruled by Sankar Varma, the king of Kashmir, which followed the invasion by Muhammad Ghazni. The area was then ruled by Maharaja Ranjit Singh, the Rajput king. Further, the place came under Mughal rule, until it was invaded by The Gorkhas, under the leadership of Amar Singh Thapa, in 1768. In the late 18th century, the Anglo-Gorkha war led to the defeat of the Gorkhas and the area coming under British rule. Narkanda hence came under the Shimla district. In modern times, the fate of Narkanda took a massive leap, when Mr Satyanand Stokes brought the apple to the town. The apple is a major source of earning and livelihood for the inhabitants of Narkanda. About 3,000 crore income of Himachal Pradesh is generated from the apple business of the state, which is mainly carried out in the town of Narkanda. Now, cherry business is also flourishing at a good pace in this town, contributing to the export economy of the state. Today, Narkanda is also popularly known for skiing. Day 2 Narkanda to Sangla(4:30 hours/161 km) Highlights: We will start before dawn so that we don’t miss the sun rise in mesmerizing Valley and have our breakfast on the way. Night Stay: Stay at Sangla Sangla Valley is located in the Kinnaur district of Himachal Pradesh. It is supposed to be one of the most beautiful valleys in the country. In Tibetan, the term Sangala means “pass of light” which refers to the valley receiving sunlight during the day. Visitors were prohibited to enter this region before because it was situated close to the Tibetan border; 25 years on and this valley has been explored by many enthusiasts. Spread over an area of over 40kms, it’s a magnificent sight to behold. Snow clad mountains surround you and you get to see the Kinner Kailash peak. The Baspa River flows through the valley and that is why it is also known as the Baspa Valley. Day 3 This day will be for detour in Sangla.You can explore places near by or just chill at the valley and soak in the beauty of this gorgeous place. Detour Suggestions: Trout Fishing in Baspa River (5km/15 Mins) Rakcham Walk (39km/39 Mins) Chitkul (23km/1 hour) Stay at Sangla Petrol pump: Tapri Tips from travelers: You’ll experience the first ever “You Don’t Call It A Road” episode near Wangtu where you drive about 8 km towards Tapri under an angry bright sun. It took me 40 mins to cover this nasty 8 km stretch. I had to stop every 10 minutes to check if my bike is not yet punctured. Tapri, however, awards you with a perfect Hot Spring where you can relax a bit. The hot spring is situated about 2 km away from the town of Tapri. The town also has a petrol pump, in case you’re planning a little detour towards Chitkul – the last Indian town. Stay at Sangla Day 4: Tabo Sangla –Nako-Tabo (4:45 Hour/191km) Explore this gorgeous place and its serene beauty, which can wrap you in its magnificent valleys. Highlights: As usual we will start before the dawn to catch the beauty of the valley and have our breakfast on the way. Night Stay: At Tabo The Tabo Monastery is one of the most pious, biggest and oldest surviving Buddhist establishments in the Trans-Himalayas. It was developed as an advanced center for learning and till date it has managed to preserve the Buddhist legacy with the same steadfastness. Flanked on either side by hills, surrounded by high boundary walls made of mud bricks, the monastery stands at a secluded, barren ground in the bottom of the valley. You will be welcomed at the monastery by the Buddhist chanting. Early morning, cold breeze and bliss. You can head toward the assembly hall from where the sound was coming. After the prayer was over, a lama will explain the significance of these chanting and then guid on the details of the assembly hall, wall paintings, clay structure and other temples. The monastery complex comprises of 9 temples, 23 chortens, a monk’s chamber and an extension that houses the nuns chamber. The monastery’s importance can be judged from the fact that its significance is second only to the Tholing Gompa in Tibet in the entire Himalayan region. Tabo is famous for its beautiful paintings and stucco sculptures which bear a striking resemblance with the paintings and sculpture in the Ajanta caves. The monastery also treasures some centuries old paintings which are not allowed to be photographed. Day 5: Kaza Tabo – Kaza (2 Hours/ 70 km) The beautiful town of Kaza is located at an altitude of about 12,500 ft., on the left bank of the Spiti River in the majestic Lahaul and Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh. It is known as the sub-divisional headquarters of Spiti and the largest township in the Lahaul and Spiti Valley, which is one of the most beautiful valleys of Himachal Pradesh. Kaza is surrounded by high mountains, crystal clear river & streams, and barren landscapes interspersed with green landscapes and meadows. It is a marvelous destination, which houses several beautiful palaces, monasteries, gompas, and other historical buildings Day 6: Kaza – Manali (8 hours/ 205 km) via Rohtang Pass Highlights: This day we will start at dawn and cross Rohtang Pass to see this magnificent valley. Night Stay: At Manali Visit Pin Valley National Park, High altitude villages of Langza, Hikkim and Komic The name Rohtang means ‘ground of corpses’ due to the number of people who lost their lives trying to cross it. The Rohtang Pass is on the Pir Panjal Mountain Range of the Himalayas. The Rohtang Pass is a natural divide between the humid Kullu Valley, which has predominantly Hindu culture and the arid, high altitude Lahaul and Spiti Valleys which mainly has Buddhists. Known for its scenic beauty, Rohtang Pass holds strategic importance for India. The Pass offers beautiful sights of glaciers, peaks, Lahaul Valley and the Chandra River. The twin peaks of Geypan are also visible from Rohtang. The pass is on the watershed between the water basins of the Chenab River and the Beas River Day 7: Free day In Manali Highlights: This day we will bump into the mythological place called Manali. According to mythology, one day, Varvasvata, the seventh incarnation of Manu found a tiny fish in his bathing water. The fish told him to look after it with devotion as one day it would do him a great service. The seventh Manu cared for the fish till the day it grew so huge that he released it into the sea. Before departing, the fish warned Manu of an impending deluge when the entire world would be submerged and bade him to build a sea worthy ark. When the flood came, Varvasvata and seven sages were towed to safety by Matsya, the fish which is regarded as first avatar of Lord Vishnu. As the water subsided the seventh Manu's ark came to the rest on a hill side and the place was named Manali (2,050 m) after him.
