Hi all,

I am planning to visit kinnaur spiti region in the month of Sept this year...My tentative itinerary as follows---

Day 00 : take kalka mail from howrah.

Day 01 : at train.

Day 02 : Reaching kalka, board shivalik express , stay at simla...

Day 03 : start for sarahan...n/s

Day 04 : sarahan to sangla to chitkul...N/S at rakhcham...

Day 05 : kalpa...

Day 06 : kalpa to nako to gue to tabo...

Day 07 : tabo to Dhankar to kaza...

Day 08 : kaza to hikkim komic langza key kibber tashigang kaza...

Day 09 : kaza to Chandratal...

Day 10 : Chandratal to manali (temple visit)...

Day 11 : manali to manikaran ...kasol N/S...

Day 12 : kasol to Kalka...take train

Day 13 : At train

Day 14 : Howrah..


I have some doubts about the itinerary...please help me out...

1) According to the itinerary we need to book a cab for 10days...What are the recent rates for Innova/Scorpio/Tata Sumo...

2 ) I am a bit confused about day 6 & day 8 ...Can we cover all those places?

3) Where to stay at Tabo & Rakcham? As heard that accommodations are limited there,we are 12 to 14 in nos, so need to prebook rooms in those places...Contact nos of hotels or homestays will be of much help...

4) Is the itinerary looks very hectic? If yes what changes can be made to it?

5) Can you guys recommend some budget hotels around Rs-1000/- to 1500/- dbl bed room in those different places ...

6) What to see at sarahan except the temple & at Kalpa?

7)Any contacts no of tents at chandratal...I have Jamaica's no but it's coming switched off...

8)Any hotel contacts at kasol too?

9)Availability of Ph tower in all those places...which connection is best?

I suggest you drop Kasol and add more time to Spiti. You are traveling every single day, which is not good - eg the day you reach Tabo, very next morning you're leaving for Kaza - what about seeing Tabo itself?

For idea re: accommodation you may refer to my TR in signature.

1) According to the itinerary we need to book a cab for 10days...What are the recent rates for Innova/Scorpio/Tata Sumo... = INR 3000 to 4000 per day

2 ) I am a bit confused about day 6 & day 8 ...Can we cover all those places? = Day 6 ok. day 8 may or may not depending how much time you spend at each destination

3) Where to stay at Tabo & Rakcham? As heard that accommodations are limited there,we are 12 to 14 in nos, so need to prebook rooms in those places...Contact nos of hotels or homestays will be of much help... = tabo has quite a few options available. instead of rakcham, stay at chitkul OR sangla. better options. rakcham is midway between sangla and chitkul

4) Is the itinerary looks very hectic? If yes what changes can be made to it? = yes a bit, you may add one more rest day in manali if possible

5) Can you guys recommend some budget hotels around Rs-1000/- to 1500/- dbl bed room in those different places ... = best will be to check o the spot. you will get more options

6) What to see at sarahan except the temple & at Kalpa? = (sarahan) a small bird sanctuary and palace of bhushar king. (kalpa) visit roghi village which is nearby

7)Any contacts no of tents at chandratal...I have Jamaica's no but it's coming switched off...
Mr. Bishan - 9418845817. he also owns a hotel in kaza

8)Any hotel contacts at kasol too? = no need. tons of guest houses around.

9)Availability of Ph tower in all those places...which connection is best? = BSNL
O mine is the lone trail, the hard trail, the best,
Wide wind, and wild stars, and hunger of the quest!

many of the Imers suggest to stay at rakcham instead of Chitkul or sangla due to better scenic beauty...Find rupin river view as the best option & panchali Guest house & kailash view camps...Need their contact no's & process of booking... In tabo there are very less no of hotels...so don't want to risk it for the spot...so if anyone have any contact no's do share...

4) Is the itinerary looks very hectic? If yes what changes can be made to it? = yes a bit, you may add one more rest day in manali if possible


Ok then we will cancel the kasol part 7 stay the day at manali...

5) Can you guys recommend some budget hotels around Rs-1000/- to 1500/- dbl bed room in those different places ... = best will be to check o the spot. you will get more options..

The main problem is that it's durga puja time...so i want to prebook atleast simla manali rakcham & tabo for safety....
Looking for the suggestion...
