We are a group of 4 friendz and are planning to go to Kinnaur or Spiti or Lahaul valley.
Is it possible to visit any of these places around 8th march.
Which out of these will be better?
Waiting for replies so that we can move ahead with planning.

With 6 days in hand, better to stick to Kinnaur. Lahaul will be out of reach. Spiti might be open. Do a trek to Chitkul if possible.

Chitkul might be open or might not be. Depends on various factor like temprature, snowfall etc.

There are 2-3 small streams that you need to cross to reach Chhitkul. If there is snow there, it may be too risky for the car to cross these. You could go there walking, but the distance may prove to be a little on the higher side.

If you can however, the pace definitely warrants a visit.

Even i had similar querry.
where will u be starting from inshy?

What i found from Himachal roadways website is dat there r many bus from chandigarh. so if we take the nite bus from chandigarh then by next morning we can reach till rampur and I guess from Rampur we can have many options!!!

Isnt it? Let the Senior Members give their suggestions.
What about bus frequency from Rampur for Sangla, Chitkul, Sarahan, Reckong Peo, Kalpa, etc ?

The info is definitely available in some thread on IM. I remember when I was planning to go there, someone had mentioned that there was a morning bus from Recong Peo. Just do some search and you will find that thread.

There are also buses to Chhitkul. But there may not be any transport to Chhitkul at that time of the year. You can go up to Sangla definitely. When I went to Kalpa and Chhitkul in November last year (trip log: http://www.indiamike.com/india/himac...2009-a-t96410/), Sangla seemed better to me than Kalpa (though I didn't stay in Sangla). This is because all the apple trees in Kalpa had shed their leaves giving the place a very desolate look. But that said .. the views of Kinner Kailash were amazing. And if it is a clear full moon night, you can get excellent night time, long exposure shots. Of course Chhitkul was better than anything else on that trip ..

Best of luck for your trip Inshy and RohanM
