Epic Blog Mithunda, I have been keeping that circuit aside because of the young one. But you nailing that trial with family gives me a lot of assurance.
I will bug you 1-1 later for details. Thanks for sharing, keep traveling and penning down such experiences. Rated 5* .

Have a Rapid myself and to see a car from the same platform handling the trip with ease gives me some assurance about the machine's capability.

Coming to think of it, even from deep down south, it would only be some 2000 kms extra for the round-trip. Add to that the pristine highways of the South and you can do this trip with 3 extra days at most. The Polo performed brilliantly throughout the trip. A testament to it's build quality.

Thanks for the kind words. You are sorely missed in the Kolkata chapter.

We stopped for dinner at a very popular sweet shop in Rae-Bareily and then gunned our engines throughout the night. By daybreak we stopped at a Reliance facility near Aurangabad for refueling and a power nap..
Great travelogue. Which route you have taken from Rae-Bareily to Aurangabad? And how much time it was taken?

Somehow, missed replying to your comment. Firstly, thanks for the appreciation. We had been taking advises regarding how the young ones would fare at such high altitudes and the consensus from the doctors were that kids above 3 years of age have fully developed lungs and that they are much less likely to suffer from altitude sickness than adults. Thankfully, the advises held true.

Thanks. We took the default GMaps route onto the Allahabad bypass and then along NH-19. Rae-Bareily to Aurangabad took about 6-7 hours.

Beautifully articulated. I went to Spiti in June this year. All the photos brought back the memories.

Excellent travelogue!! 👍👍👍

Question on your Kaza stay:

Deyzor also allows stay, so what was your logic for booking HPTDC Kaza? # of rooms being a bigger group, or something else?

I was planning this year, didn't work. So I will pickup the plan again - hence thought of getting this point checked. TIA!

We normally tend to opt for the Government facilities wherever available.

Although I was not a part of this group, buy I'd like to state my view on why we stayed in HPTDC instead of Deyzor (or any other hotel)
1) Frankly speaking, I had no idea that anything like Deyzor existed. We accidentally bumped into it while looking for a souvenir shop. We loved the place and the hospitality of the owner, staff and ofcourse Simba that we had all our lunches and dinners at Deyzor. Not sure if they take bookings online because of the lack of network and internet, but if they do, then this is definitely worth giving a try.
2) My second reason of booking HPTDC was that it allowed advance booking. We went to Himachal Bhawan (near CP, Delhi) and booked our entire itinerary hassle free (HPTDC Fagu, Kalpa and Kaza). Since we had our families accompanying us, we couldn't have taken chances and thought that HPTDC was the safest best. Their hotels aren't the best in luxury, but you'll find then decent and hygienic.

Great travelogue Mithun. You have great style of narration and it is accompanied by great pics of nature and cars. How can get it better!
Rated 5-star and it deserves it. Completed it one go. Thanks for sharing.
If you dont mind, can you please share details of cost incurred for the trip?


I have been upto Rohtang Pass about 4 years back. But missed spiti valley then. Now reason for yet another Himalayan trip.

Plus the fact that the state owned properties are inherently situated at the most picturesque locations, offer large and secure parking facilities, reasonable tariffs and are mostly very reliable.

Thanks for the appreciation. I'm not the person who keeps a keen tab on expenses. My guess would be around Rs.80,000/- (per family / car).
