Hi Vargis, Firstly congratulation for this wonderful blog spot, its such a big help with one stop solutions for all the travel quires for people like us. So, I am planning to go on a road trip to Spiti in mid May , I am aware that Manali route is not operational until first week of June but was wondering if there are any chances for me to be able to visit and camp on Chandratal lake in mid may, precisely before 20th May. Kindly advise. I have planned the following 10 days itinerary, kindly advise whether its achievable or no, considering we are two of us riding on thunder bird 500cc: Day 1 - Chandigarh - Sarahan Day 2- Sarahan - Chitkul- Kalpa (is this possible to cover) Day 3- Kalpa - Nako- Gue- Tabo Day 4- Tabo - Dhankar-Mudh Village Day 5 - Mudh Village- Kaza-Kibber-Ki Day 6- Kaza - Hikkim- Komic- Langza-Kaza Day 7- Kaza- Losar-Chandratal -Kaza or Kaza- Losar-Chandratal (if Manali Route is open) Day 8- Kaza - Kapla or Kaza-Rohtang Pass- Manali (if Manali Route is open) Day 9- Kalpa - Shimla or Manali to Chandigarh (if Manali Route is open) Day 10 -Shimla -Chandigarh Also, where and how can I check for the manali- kaza route opening dates ?
