We had a six-day trip in Spiti. We were picked from Manali. We reached Spiti after about a twelve-hour journey in the bolero. We crossed the Rohtang pass on the way to Kaza. The town of Kaza is the headquarters or chief town in Spiti valley. Next day we travelled from Kaza to the key monastery and Kibber.On day three we went to Dhankar monastery and Lallung followed by a visit to Hikkim ,Komic and Langja on the fourth day. Hikkim is the home to the world’s highest post office. That night we had homestay at Langja. Next day we went to Chandratal situated at the height of 4480m above sea level. We had a chance to stay in tents at Chantratal base camps. And I must say what cosy tents they were. The temperature was freezing outside, there was snow in the morning and our bags had stiffened in the cold. But nothing happened to us. In fact, we were provided with proper dinner including dal, rice, chapati and veggie even at such an altitude. The next morning was spend in capturing reflections at Lake Chantratal. Though our hands almost froze at dawn hour but still the zeal to get the best shot remained high. Later that day we returned back to Manali with heavy hearts and ya lots of pinging messages on our phones as the networks got back. If I say the truth we so hated that pinging on the way back… because we had fallen in love we the calmness of the Spiti valley. The spiti expedition group had taken care of our every need from hot waters to food to travel. We had undertaken the landscape package which included astrophotography, night stay, camp stay and visit to the above-mentioned places. Apart from this, Spiti expedition tours and travels offer various other packages like the winter package which includes photography of snow leopard, astrophotography packages, trekking trips, glacier trips and bird watching trip as well.
The trip was worth every second of my life that I spend there. It’s more than just a trip.Spiti offers your stranded-materialistic-oh so busy city soul the healing of nature. A panoramic view of the galaxy up above, huge rugged mountains surrounding you, running stream, calm reflective waters of Chandratal all make you fall in love with this land and Yourself! Its time to fall in love with nature and with yourself…plan out a trip to Spiti valley and surely spiti expedition tour and travels would make your trip memorable and an awesome one.
