Hello,

I'm hoping to catch a shared taxi from Manali to Kaza as I hear the bus that leaves really early from Kullu and often full- plus a shared taxi seems more comfortable. However... how is it done?

Can anyone provide information on where to catch a shared taxi? Do you arrive at the bus stand in the morning to find it? Is it arranged ahead of time? Is it guaranteed or does it depend?

Any experience with this or information would very much appreciated.

Travel would be for early October of this year.

Thank you!

First of all check if the passes are open once you reach Manali. If they are not then reaching Kaza from Manali would be a problem.

Not sure where the catch the share cab from. Usually a shared cab will leave once all the seats are occupied. You could check with your hotel to know from where the shared cab leaves and if some one from your hotel is going to Kaza.

If going to Kaza is a must go via Shimla, as that route is usually open all through the year.

See http://vargiskhan.com/log/spiti-vall...requency-fare/ for the local bus timings.

I have not used a shared cab myself, but I have seen near the Manali bus stand cab drivers asking around if anyone is looking for a ride to Shimla. You may try there. Another option is to talk to your hotel reception for information on shared cabs. Third option is

Cab owners publish their rides about 72 hours in advance in this site.

You can try to go to Kiran Guest House in Manali, which is in the lower part of town just before the State Bank of India when you come from the Mall. There the car drivers coming from Spiti spend the nights before going back, and usually every day there are few cars going to Kaza. Ask at the reception as they know who is going where and when. They also leave very early and you have to get to get to Kiran G.H. to take your lift. Good luck.

It would be 8- 9 hour drive by car and 11 - 12 hour by bus.
