    Dear Mr Khan,
    At the very outset, I would like to thank you for the informative and (extremely) helpful blogs about travelling in Spiti valley. My friend and I are planning to head that way in the second half of June. We will be backpacking through the region, travelling by local buses and staying in monasteries, home stays and hostels.
    My query is regarding the Chandratal leg of this circuit. We will be taking the bus from Kaza, cross Kunzum Pass and get off at Batal. It own;t be possible for us to hike up to the lake because we will be carrying heavy-ish rucksacks (filled with things for a 2-week trip).
    Hence, do you by any chance have the phone number(s) of taxi drivers in the region?
    I will be looking forward to hearing from you.

    Warm regards,

    Please talk to Jamaica at 9418200183. He runs a camp site at Chandratal and is the best place to stay that I recommend to everyone. In case you are not able to reach his number then drop a message on watsapp and he will call back. Talk to him, stay at his camps and he will arrange to have you picked up from Batal. He also runs a hotel in Kaza in case you want to stay there.

    Thanks for the tips and Jaimaica's number Mr Khan. I will call him in the next few days and fix something up.
    In Kaza, we have already booked ourselves into Zostel.
