Hi, we're planning a trek in Himachal Pradesh or Spiti (depending on the weather) from around 3d August (little bit flexibel). Anybody wants to join us?
It's more fun with more people. We'd like to trek for a week, say 5 to 9 days.
We = Peter from Scotland and Isha from Belgium. We both did some trekking before and I did a few treks in Himachal Pradesh already, it was great. Spiti might be better in the rainy season though.

yeah we'd rather not have the rain, that's why we might just choose Spiti. Trekking near Kibber should be great.
Right now, I'm in Leh and starting for trek tomorrow, so you won't hear from me for the next week.
Seeing your message, i suppose you did some trekking in Himalayas yourself? Where is Khamenger valley???
I'll get in touch with messenger,

Hi Ugph,
great to hear that you did some treks in this area. Did you like one in particular? What about the height? Does it take a lot of acclimatising?

Hi hobomike,

we're still going!! Didn't check posts since some time because of travel in remote areas...

Right now we're thinking about trekking from Spiti to Kinnaur, From Guling over Bhaba Pass to Kafnoo. But we're open for suggestions. Spiti might be a good place to start because it's raining less there, and it's also a beautiful valley. Kinnaur as well...

Hey well, i guess im lucky and on a different subject im very very passionate about himalayas they have changed my perception to a considerable degree.. so i owe my life to them. im carrying 25-30 k so lets see how many days i cant take out without staying in a luxurious manner..i reckon 2-3 months in kinnaur/sangla/pin and spiti valley.

lemme know when you are solo trekking, since im also trekking solo this time around for lots of places..

cheers
