Hi!

two of us are hoping to travel to spiti & Pin (via nako/ tabo and kaza) in the first 2 weeks of June. We hope to take an SUV with driver from Shimla.

We have a few questions for which we'd like any inputs/ advice/ suggestions:
1. We'd like to visit Pin valley - is it a good idea to go from Tabo to Pin and then onto Kaza?

2. Is it possible to do Kaza to manali in one day?

3. If one wants to do Chandratal en route, where should the night halt be? Any homestays/ guesthouse recommendations?

thanks in advance, folks!

Travelwacky there is soo much information on spiti on this forum, all you had to do was search.

Anyways, here are your answers.

1) Good idea ? Its a normal idea.. you can go to tabo then pin and come to kaza, in my opinion the only reason you could be in kaza before would be lack of certain groceries/toiletries/warm clothing etc, besides groceries and toiletries can be managed in tabo as well.

2) Yes it possible, start early and you will in manali by evening (Subjective to the road conditions in chandra valley and kunzum la)

3)No accommodation in chandratal anymore, you have to carry your own tents and stoves, 1 option is staying in cold Batal (12 km after crossing the kunzum la), where the rice-dal is exquisite and sleeping arrangements are basic.

Spiti plan- does this sound do-able?

There's too much to see in Kinnaur/ Spiti and we have a limited no. of days.

We want to spend 2 days in Sangla (we went last year and want to go back for old times sake) followed by Nako for 1 night. Thereafter this is what we'd like to see... is it do-able in this order?
[*]From nako to Mikkim (Pin) via Tabo - 2 nights in Mikkim so that we get a full day in Pin. [*]From there on to Dhankar 1 night, [*]Langza 1 night, [*]Kaza, Ki and Kibber - 1 night, [*]Losar -1 night [*]Finally on to chandrataal and manali.
