Details

Move over the much-hyped and now crowded Leh Ladakh. If Cold desserts, clear turquoise blue water lakes & rivers, epic landscapes and far off monasteries are your thing, then Spiti lies much ahead in the race than Ladakh!! Spiti is rightly called a travelers muse. Be careful though- the colossal sky, vast mountains, and glittering stars might have such a long-lasting effect on your heart that you might never want to leave this heaven!  

Drive through one of the most beautiful picture-perfect roads in the world while halting along in dreamy mountain villages. This Spiti Valley road trip from Shimla goes through Kalpa of the Kinnaur Valley and finally enters Spiti through the village of Nako. Explore ancient thousand-year-old monasteries, trek to hidden lakes, ride a Yak, live in authentic homestays and spend time in some of the highest villages in Asia.

Dubbed as The world's most adventurous road, the Hindustan-Tibet highway is a visual masterpiece. Don't let that misnomer frighten you because, despite its hairpin curves and steep drops, this road has been safely ferrying travelers since the 1850s.

We can go on and on raving about this "Traveler's  mecca and a virgin paradise", but we'd rather leave it up to you; to come explore this mystic land with us and go back with a thousand reasons as to why going to this week-long exploration into the unknown could be a life-changing trip for you!

DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 1 Delhi Arrival | Overnight Journey

Our journey will begin from the capital of India, Delhi! We'll escape the maddening heat of this city as we board our bus from here to Manali. We'll share the exact meet-up point once we get your confirmation.

Day 2 Manali Arrival | Acclimatization

Reach Manali by morning and check-in to the Hotel. After having breakfast and some leisure, feel free to explore the local area of Manali according to the place that interests you. You can visit the Mall road, Hidimba Temple, Old Manali for some good cafes to chill or Vashisht temple for the Hot water Spring. Come back to the hotel by evening. Briefing about the next day and sleep overnight.

Day 3 Manali – Rohtang Pass – Kunzum La – Kaza

Post early breakfast, we start our journey to the valley of the Gods – Lahaul & Spiti! Crossover to Lahaul by passing through the adventure haven – The Rohtang Pass, and watch the terrain shift from lush green valleys to brown arid desserts. At 14,931 ft we cross another high altitude pass & the gateway to the Spiti Valley – Kunzum La. We continue our drive through the stunning landscape to reach Kaza by evening, and overnight stay in the Homestay at Kaza.

Day 4 Kaza - Key Monastery - Kibber - Pin Valley - Kaza

Being remotely located atop a hill overlooking endless plains, the Key Monastery is a world famous center for learning and is an obvious choice for those seeking peace and calm. Declared a national park in 1987, Pin Valley has altitudes ranging from 11,000 to 20,000 feet and is home to at least 12 endangered snow leopards. In addition, other animals indigenous to the region and park are the Siberian Ibex, Bharal, Weasel, Red Fox, and Marten. Birds such as the Pika, Griffon, Golden Eagle, Bearded Vulture, Chukor, and Raven can be spotted flocking to the skies of the picturesque valley. We first visit the Kungri Monastery and then the beautiful hamlet of Mud – the last motorable village of the Pin Valley. Overnight at Kaza.

Day 5  Kaza - Hikkim - Komic - Langza - Kaza

Visit some of the highest inhabited regions of the world. The highest village in Asia – Komic, situated at a height of 4513 m, has a population of 84 people and is cut off from rest of the world for most parts of the year. Later, we drive to Hikkim, where we have a chance to send postcards from the world’s highest post office! At Langza, walk back to the prehistoric era when Spiti was submerged by the Tethys Sea, as you explore a land very rich with fossils of Marine animals and plants which were here millions of years ago. Overnight at Kaza.

Day 6 Kaza - Chicham - Losar - Kunzum La - Chandra Taal Lake

We start tracing our steps back towards Manali. However, make one last stop to witness another Spitian wonder – Chandra Taal Lake. The mystical and beautiful Chandra Taal Lake or the Moon Lake is located at a height of 14,000 feet. The Chandra Bhaga mountain range forms a striking backdrop for the lake, which changes appearance according to the pictures painted in the sky. Later check in to the Campsite near Chandra Taal Lake, and overnight stay at the tents under the gaze of a million stars and the Milky Way Galaxy.

Day 7 Departure

Today, we commence our way back on the Manali – Kaza Road. We pass through some more stunning landscapes and cross the Rohtang Pass to reach Manali by afternoon. After some leisure at the Café, we board the Volvo to Delhi and reach by next morning with lots of amazing memories to remember for a lifetime!

Reviews for Organizer 3.5
Firstly, if you are planning for the monsoon treks around the season, they are gonna be a good experience because the weather is awesome. If you are taking the help of an events organizer, you want them to add to the experience rather than making you feel annoyed even admist the pleasant surroundings. Live before you die is a poor organizer of Kalsubai trek and it is better to avoid them. Both the trek leaders Smit and Kaustubh were lacking in experience of leading a trek. I have done treks previously on my own as well as with event organisers but this one with Live before you die was one of the worst experiences I have had. Both the trek leaders had no value for time and from the start itself were not at all bothered to go as per the plan. We finally left at 7 pm against the plan of 4 pm and it would have been even more late if left up to the organziers. There was even no proper planning to have the size of the group equal to the capacity of bus and last minute adjustments were being made. The same was an issue while return as well. Both the trek leaders failed to help the group in crucial moments of ascent as well as descent during the trek and people were doing it on their own. The trek isn't hard but rain had made the tracks very slippery. I have saved the worst part for last. The trek leaders instead of letting the group sleep the night before in the bus played music throughout with singing and antakshiri which made it more of a picnic and was evident in how some of the people not being able to handle the strain tge next day because of lack of sleep. There are other pointers as well but I guess I would have made myself clear. Please go to Kalsubai trek but not with Live before you die. - by Abishake Koul for Monsoon Special Trek To Mt. Kalsubai organized by LiveB4YouDie .
