Day 1:

Drive From Manali - Kaza

  • We would be arranging pickup from Manali Mall road at 5 AM on Day 1 of this tour. We would be leaving Kullu district and crossing the famous Rohtang Pass to enter into Lahaul & Spiti side of Himachal.
  • Our journey would be through one of the toughest roads on the planet. As we would be crossing a number of rivulets, we would be starting early from Manali.
  • Starting early gives the advantage of facing lower water levels in the rivulets. Once sun is at full energy during afternoon, snow at upper areas melt and thus water level rises during evening time.
  • We would take a breakfast stop at 7 AM near Marhi (35 kms from Manali), From 2000 metres altitude of Manali, we scale to nearly 4000 metres of mighty Rohtang Pass within a span of 52 kms.
  • Rohtang Pass at 3978 metres has been the lifeline for people of Spiti and Ladakh. It is also on the line of ancient trade route between people of Kullu and Lahaul Spiti. Till this date, gaddi’s take their goats from barren landscapes of Lahaul Spiti to greener pastures of Kullu valley during June to September.
  • As we descend from Rohtang, road divides into 2: one towards north i.e. Leh and other towards east i.e. Spiti.
  • As we continue our journey towards Spiti, landscapes slowly tilt towards brown from greener tint. As this region is over tree line, we see lesser trees.
  • We would take lunch break at Batal after which we go towards Kaza where we will reach by evening.
