    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 ?

    Thanks.

    Thank you so much for your kind words.

    Hello Radhika,

    Your plan looks good but I will just make a couple of suggestions to refine it.

    In case Manali route remains closed.

    Day 1 - Chandigarh - Sarahan
    Day 2- Sarahan - Chitkul (Going to Kalpa on the same day will be a bit of long journey so stay at Chitkul only)
    Day 3- Chitkul to Nako (Bit of a long journey so ensure you get an early start from Chitkul)
    Day 4- Nako -Tabo - Dhankar-Mudh Village
    Day 5 - Mudh Village- Kaza
    Day 6- Kaza - Kye - Kibber - Hikkim- Komic- Langza-Kaza
    Day 7- Kaza- Losar-Chandratal -Kaza
    Day 8- Kaza - Kalpa
    Day 9- Kalpa - Shimla
    Day 10 Shimla -Chandigarh
    Day 11 - Keep at Least one day as buffer ... plan for 11 days to be on a safer side.
