Hello friends, We are three friends planning for Spiti circuit from Delhi on two RE classic 350 from 5th to 12th Oct. ( one fatty as Pillion) I have obligation to join new office by 14th Oct so have to be back in 8 days. I know based on my last time experience that these are not enough days to cover everything. Hence need your help to review below itinerary and advice if this looks feasible. Last time I went via Shimla and came back via Manali. Going over the dreadful Kaza to Manali road towards end of trip is what I want to avoid. Hence hoping to go to Manali first and return via Shimla this time. Day 1 - Delhi - Manali Day 2 - Manali - Chandratal ( 140k - 5hrs ride , stay at Chandratal camp ) Day 3 - Chandratal - losar, Kaza, ( visiting )ki Kibber, Gette, Tashigang ( 106 km - 7/8hrs ride including stops) Day 4 - Kaza - Pin Valley (mud) - Kaza (110 kms - 6-7hrs including stops ) Day 5 - Kaza - langza - Komik - Hikkim - Kaza- Tabo ( 94 kms - 6-7 hrs including stops ) Day 6 - Tabo - Chitkul ( leave early - 200 kms - 8 hrs ) Day 7 - Chitkul - Narkanda ( 182 kms - 7 hrs ) Day 8 - Shimla - Delhi 1)Do you this is doable or have I stretched it too much? Also I have few questions if you could help with these 2) We will reach Manali on Day 1 in evening Saturday. Will we be able to get Inner Line permit the same day and leave early morning Sunday for Chandratal ? 3) After Manali, next petrol pump is Kaza I think. Do you think we will be able to reach Kaza( 250-270kms ride ) on RE classic 350 tanks full. I have not ridden RE on hills hence not sure what average it will give. 4) Will the Fatty Pillion and the Bike survive the Manali to Kaza stretch ? 5) Should we stay at Pin valley( Mud) on Day 4 instead of Kaza. 6) I have excluded the Demul on Day5, do you think it is worth the visit and probably stay in Demul instead of Tabo. 7) My friend suggested that roads from Kaza to Shimla have improved compared to 4 yrs back when I visited. He suggested we should be able to reach Tabo to Chitkul in 6-7 hrs. (Day 6) Is that really true? 8)Any other Thoughts, opinions , suggestions. Thanks in advance.
