We 2 people wish to visit Spiti between 11th Aug - 18th Aug and planning to travel by public transport. Kindly suggest suitable itinerary. Will it be better to start the journey from Chandigarh or Delhi?

From where will you be starting exactly.
Even if u start from Delhi you need to go via Chandigarh only by bus.

I will be reaching Delhi by 10th Aug. Can you help me out with feasible itinerary.
Try to keep one 2 days buffer if you have not booked your return tickets. As aug months lots of rain and landslides may cause some delay.

day 1 Delhi to shimla
day 2 shimla to kalpa / reckong
day 3 kalpa to nako visit monustary lake and then tey for local cab till tabo
day 4 tabo to pin valley
day 5 pin to kaza
day 6 key kibber komik langza hikkim
day 7 chandratal and back to kaza
day 8 kaza to shimla
day 9 shimla to delhi

u can make direct shimla to nako as well on day 2 as there is nothing in kalpa much.
day 5 u can skip pin valley as well as rest of the places are more scenic

Thanks. Is it possible to return to Manali from Chandratal? Is that route open? Also could you help me with local cab driver numbers

Yes you can return from Manali side .
Don't have any driver number as of now.
Once you reach Spiti opposite to bus stand only there is taxi stand you can ask them.
You can either go with a group or solo in taxi

For any other help in kaza n chandratal you can contact Jamaica - 9418200183

1 yes it is safe but be prepared for rain n land slides.
2 yes classic 500 350 Himalayan can do. It depends on your style of riding any bike 200+cc can do.
3 you can get in Chandigarh
4 probably yes in Chandigarh but not sure.

Better go in sept if you've not planned for holidays and so on.
