Thank you buddy , thouroughly enjoyed the trip with you. Slowly getting obsessed with that region, sure will make it. Commendable to be able to remember so well and pen it after 5 years.

how much would you rate the difficulty level of Lahual and Spiti for an experienced rider?
Roads are nice in this region.There is a small patch of the road before and after Kunzum pass, which is a bit difficult.The road to Rohtang pass is notorious for heavy traffic jam and brown chocolaty mud and slush.This circuit can be done easily by any motorcycle.

Thanks manjumon.
Actually, I visited this region twice after this trip. Moreover, I always help friends to design their itinerary and other preparations. So, I am very much familiar with this region.

Amazing travelogue. You really gave us an immersive experience. Thanks for that. I did ladakh last year and not able to keep lahaul and spiti out of my mind since then. Mostly will be doing it next year. Can you pls share your itinerary?
Also, was there anytime you felt AMS or is it very gradual elevation gain? Also, any suggestion around grey ghosts (snow leopards) sighting? I have heard that its possible to track them in spiti region.

Thanks in advance.

I sent(by email) you a rough itinerary, which I designed for one of my friend's Spiti trip(Ahmedabad to Ahmedabad by SUV)

The route from Shimla is a gradual ascent and helps you acclimatize, however, if you are coming from the Manali route, you will need to take a day’s rest in Manali to acclimatize before heading to Spiti.

Yes, this region is famous for Snow leopard spotting. This season(winter) some of my friends spotted Snow leopards around Chicham village. However, normal tourist season ( May to Oct) is not suitable for Snow leopard spotting.

Thanks for the wonderful travelogue and amazing pictures. This place looks worth a visit.

In which month you did this trip? Which is the best time for Spiti?

Do you have any contact numbers of cabs in Shimla (for a Spiti trip from Shimla)?

Can you please share your itinerary?

kunzum Pass is between Manali and Kaza, which is notorious for closing early and opening late. Normally, it opens after mid-June and closes late September.
