Hi Vargis, Thanks for this amazing blog. Really helpful. We are going to Spiti from Delhi via a self driven car and will follow your itinerary for 8 days via Shimla. I just had a couple of quick questions and would really appreciate your answers. We are leaving on June 24 and then plan to go to SPiti via Shimla and return via Manali. My first question is what kind of a car is suitable for the above route? Does an i20 Elite work or we need to have a better car like Ford Ecosport. Second, do we need any permits for our trip? And lastly, we have our own tents and sleeping bags and just wanted to see if it is possible to camp at a location of our preference? Would really appreciate a quick response. Thanks in advance.
