Himalayan odyssey: Lahaul and Spiti Valleys

print   ·   T  T  

Road trips are always exciting and there’s nothing as thrilling as driving from Manali to Shimla via the Lahaul and Spiti valleys. “These valleys are unsurpassed in mountainscape,” says Sneha. “The sheer vastness, snow capped mountains, glaciers along the roads, monasteries, apple orchards, Himalayan flower bed, etc, make these places a must see. Here’s where you can visit Kibber, the highest village in the world and see the beautiful monasteries of Kee, Kaza, Dhankar and Tabo. Trek up to the spectacular Chandra taal for some gorgeous scenery. You get a chance to drive on some of the most dangerous roads in India, the Marling Nala being the most perilous.” While June-September is ideal for road trips, Sneha says: “Don’t expect to stay at a fancy place. Most hotels are not listed online so bookings may have to be made only once you get there.”
