Hi Imikers,

I am starting for Kaza in the last week of May. Wondering if Rohtang Pass and the road from Spiti to Rohtang is likely to be open during this period . I plan to go via Shimla and come back via Manali as it seems the most suggested/ preferred way to travel this circuit. I return from Kaza in the first week of June.

Since I hear that there are no toilets in the Kaza Rohtang pass road, except for the HP PWD rest/ guest houses in Losar, Batal or Chattru and since Chandratal will probably be closed at this time of the year, I would prefer going to Manali from Kaza (My wife will accompany). Unless a stop is recommended for health reasons or getting an on-the-spot booking in one of these places en route to Manali is easy and there is something to look forward to in one of these three places. However, I would not mind spending a quiet night in one of them if there are good staying options with toilets.

Three more things:

Would like to know about local transport options in Kaza for visiting nearby areas (Hikkim, Komic and Mud). Is there a taxi union? One of the blogs that I had read, had mentioned it but it was rather old.

Peo: Best places to stay in Peo

Peo to Kalpa: How early will the shared taxis start plying?


Thank you very much!

As of yesterday the road from Manali to Kaza was open for small vehicles, meaning cars.

Okay, thanks for sharing that @voyager61. Though, we will do most of our travel by bus, except in and around Kaza. Hoping Kaza - Rohtang clears by July first week. Eagerly waiting to know about the rest of my queries.

Thanks, snotty. But the last post seems as old as 2012!

Imikers, looking forward to hearing from Shimla - Spiti- Manali Circuit experts on rest of my queries.

That happens to be the first post. The last post is a few hours old..

Also do check out on this thread - 2015 one, but seems similar to what you are planning.
