    Hi,
    I am planning trip to Lahaul and Spiti sometime around 10th August. Total days are 10. Journey starting and ending point will be New Delhi or Chandigarh. It would be great if you can advise on:
    1. Is 10 days good enough to complete the circuit starting at Shimla and ending at Manali
    2. Which all places should we be staying over night and how many days at each location, keeping in view we don't want to spend lot of time in travelling (may be max 4 hours in a day from one location to other)
    3. Is it possible to cover baralacchha pass as well in these 10days
    4. How are the roads in this region
    5. hotels you may suggest for stay at these locations

    Thanks

    Hello Ketan - 10 days should be sufficient but how are you traveling? By your own vehicle or public transport?

    In that case, Yes 10 days will be more than enough. Roads in Spiti are bad always but considdering that you are going at the time of Monsoon, it may even be worse. Itinerary can be as mentioned below.

    1. Delhi tO Narkanda
    2. Narkanda to Sarahan
    3. Sarahan to Chitkul
    4. Chitkul to Nako
    5. Nako to Mud Village (Pin Valley)
    6. Mud to Kaza
    7. Kaza to Kibber / Komik / Langza / Hikkim to Kaza
    8. Kaza to Chandratal
    9. Chandrata to Manali
    10. Manali to Delhi

    If you want to cover Baralacha Pass as well, then either skip Pin Valley and head straight to Kaza from Nako. Or skip the day stay at Kaza on Day 7.
