The invention of the wheel was a momentous event that changed the way men travel and eventually men; not unlike the discovery of the BROKEN wheel, which changed the way we travel and eventually us. Our adventure during our journey from Kaza to Kunzum Pass, Batal, Chandratal and then finally to Manali impacted us in many ways and it was all for good. It all started with the first trip to Spiti when despite our crossed fingers and fervent prayers to the snow gods, the Kunzum Pass stayed closed. So, a second trip was arranged the next year with Kaza, Kunzum Pass, Chandratal and Rohtang Pass as the highlights of this 2018 trip. The Kunzum Pass at about 4,590 meters on the eastern Kunzum Range connects the Lahaul and Spiti valleys in Himachal Pradesh. It opens for vehicular traffic in early June and closes for winter in by Mid October. Another 75 km to the west, in the neighborhood of Manali, is the more famous Rohtang Pass (3,978 m), in the Pir Panjal range, connecting the Kullu and Lahaul valleys. Our 2018 trip would take us through both these passes and also the Chandra Taal Lake, which lies en route at a detour of just 10 km.
