Early in the morning, begin the Lahaul Spiti self drive road trip from Delhi, heading towards Narkanda. Look out for changing landscape and scenery during this approximately 7 hours drive. See the vast northern plains transform into deciduous forests in the Shivalik Hills. These in turn will be taken over by forests of pine at moderate altitudes. By the time you reach Narkanda, the pines will be disappeared, and towering pindrows and deodars will be seen. - On arrival in Narkanda in the evening, transfer to your lodging located amidst mesmerising apple orchards. Enjoy watching the bewitching sunset over thickly forested mountains. Later warm yourselves by the side of a bonfire, and then relish a buffet dinner, followed by an overnight stay.
In the early hours of a day, enjoy a leisurely and refreshing stroll through the orchards and then relish a nourishing breakfast. Post breakfast, start the road journey to the village of Sangla. Pass through the village of Sarahan, which has buildings made of wood and topped by concave sloping roofs. The Chinese Buddhist influence on the architecture makes evident that the Lahaul and Spiti region is not too far. Further on the way to Sangla, enjoy a picnic and on arriving in the village, travel to your lodging. Make the most of a breathtaking twilight by sipping freshly prepared tea. End the experience with an overnight stay.
Take a break from this exciting road expedition, and spend two days acclimatising to harsh weather conditions. Put this time to better use by driving to Chitkul – the last Indian village before the India-Tibet border. Notice the vegetation grow thinner at higher elevations, and also see the jungles transform into meadows.
you can enjoy a picnic here or embark on a short hike of about 5 km to the Indian Army border check-post, which overlooks the Tibetan Plateau. Adventure sports, such as rappelling, rock climbing and river crossing can also be enjoyed here, though charges for some of these may apply. Trekking enthusiasts may undertake easy or tough hiking expeditions in the area around Sangla. Also as part of this sightseeing trip, visit some local villages to understand the culture of the inhabitants. Spend the rest of the time sitting on the banks of the hissing Baspa River and gazing endlessly at the mountains.
This section of the Lahaul Spiti road trip involves crossing the major ranges of the Himalayas and entering the cold and almost-barren Spiti Valley. Start the journey before dawn to witness a spellbinding sunrise over the mountains in Kalpa. Later, move on to Nako Lake – a small alpine pond next to the Nako village. This sparkling lake is surrounded by deciduous trees that become yellow in autumn and shed their leaves. Post relishing lunch on the shores of the water body, travel to the village of Tabo, which has the famous Tabo Monastery. Like most such places in the country, Tabo Monastery has temples, halls and stupas; and its interiors are richly decorated with wall paintings. There are also caves carved into the mountains where monks still meditate. Later, travel deeper in the Spiti Valley to arrive in the town of Kaza. On reaching here in the evening, transfer to your lodging and stay overnight.
Spend the entire day sightseeing in and around the town of Kaza. Also as part of this sightseeing trip, travel to Pin Valley National Park – located between altitudes of 11500 feet and 20000 feet. The cold desert climate of the region supports trees like juniper and birch. Animals, such as snow leopards, Tibetan wolves, griffon vultures and lammergeier are found here. Get a taste of the local culture by taking trips through the high altitude villages of Komik, Hikkim and Langza. All these villages are situated at around 14000 feet altitude, making them some of the highest settlements in the world. Later visit Ki Monastery, which was constructed in the 11th century. It is built amidst mountain peaks, and from the monastery the Spiti River is visible meandering below. Return to your lodging in Kaza after sightseeing, and enjoy a good night’s sleep.
Post recommencing this Lahaul Spiti road tour, drive to the summit of Kunzum La. This mountain pass has an altitude of approximately 15000 feet, and owing to this reason it is always freezing here and snow is visible almost all through the year. Following the descent from the pass, drive on a rough, muddy and rocky road for about 12 km. Feel the adrenaline rush and the adventure level of the expedition increase while travelling on this track.
In the morning, start the penultimate phase of this Spiti road trip by leaving Kaza and heading towards Manali. Ascend to the summit of Rohtang Pass, and upon descending from here see the landscape change yet again. The barren and desert-like terrain of the Lahaul and Spiti region will transform into thickly forested Himalayas once the pass is crossed. On reaching Manali at dusk, transfer to your lodging and recollect the memories of the journey over champagne and pizzas. Thereafter, enjoy an overnight stay in the hill station.
End this amazing venture by driving from Manali on the winding mountain roads and reaching Delhi.
