Hi bro.. Really a great video.. I'm inspired to travel spiti this year June.. But I'm from bangalore and I just want to go rented bike road from Shimla n return back again Shimla.. As I'm planning flights from bangalore to Shimla.. Let me is this good idea.. Or any feedback
+Artiphilia thanks bro.. As I have already have travelled Ladhak 2 times its fine for me.. But bit worried about my wife, stay and is it good idea to travel in bike from Shimla cover till chandratal and come back again in bike
Yes planning via bus from Delhi to Shimla is a good idea. The road condition is Ok from Shimla till Kaza except few patches in between. Just be cautious beyond Losar and towards Chandratal as the road condition is rough.
During our Spiti Valley trip in first week of October 2017, we never wanted to skip Pin Valley. But due to some changes in itinerary we had to skip this valley. For those who are traveling to Spiti Valley, I'll always suggest to cover Pin Valley.
Thanks. For Kasol and Manikaran, When you drive towards Kullu from Manali, You need to divert from a place called Bhuntar, and is 50 km from Manali. And Kasol is further 30 km in distance from Bhuntar.
Thanks a ton bro... I have been to Sangla via Chandigarh , Simla & Rampur this October. I have promised my self to visit Spiti valley in summer 2019 & this video has helped very much to plan my trip. Once again thank you so much.
Excellent work 👏🏼👏🏼.. the way you are explained everything Is Awesome. You make very simple everything. You Done a Professional work 🙌🙌. If possible then please share your personal experience or difficulty you face in next videos.
While April cannot be termed as the best time. But you can plan your trip to Spiti in April via Shimla. And yes it's possible. But you cannot exit via Manali due to the heavy snowfall on Kunzum La and Rohtang La. Rohtang generally opens on April end or early May, whereas Kunzum opens on June. So you have to return via Shimla only if you have planned in April.
Yes, You'll get help. The locals are very helpful. Even you may get support from the fellow travelers. I have seen many solo travelers. Just one thing to keep in mind.. never ride late or during night and reach your destination on time.So enjoy and all the best for your trip.
