Day1: Arrive in Manali
On reaching Manali, check- in to the hotel and relax till afternoon. Have your lunch and then leave for your motorbike ride. Go all the way riding on the Himalayan through the rough roads along the Valley. There are tricky bends and stretches on the road which will help you know the torque characteristics of the bike. Enjoy the ride to the beautiful Valley. Later, come back to the hotel and have a comfortable stay. O/N Stay & Dinner at Manali.

 

Day 2 : Manali to Tirthan Valley

Start off the ride and head south, riding with the Beas River by our side. We head towards TirthanValley, it’s along the Thirthan River in Banjar. Valley is the entry point to Great Himalayan National Park (GHNP), famous for its rich bio-diversity. We stay at our river touch campsite in homely atmosphere. O/N Stay & Dinner at TirthanValley.

 

Day 3: TirthanValley to Sarahan

Leave the Tirthan valley and ride along the GHNP, climbing up towards the Jalori Pass (10,800 feet) through dense Deodar jungles. This is a challenging part of the day’s journey because the road goes from bad to worse towards the top, with some tricky curves thrown in as well. After the descent from Jalori pass, we reach the beautiful town of Sarahan, famous for the Bhimakali Temple. The hotel at Sarahan where we stay for the night enjoys a grand view of Mount Srikhand. O/N Stay & Dinner at Sarahan.

 

Day 4: Sarahan to Kalpa

Ride on the famous Hindustan-Tibet Highway along the Sutlej river. A tarmac road with easy riding conditions with beautiful views of the Sutlej, it helps us reach Kalpa comfortably. Kalpa is the main town of Kinnaur district, home to the delicious Kinnaur Apples. Kalpa also offers a spectacular view of one of the holiest mountains in India – Kinner Kailash. O/N Stay & Dinner at Kalpa.

 

Day 5: Kalpa to Tabo

After an early breakfast, we continue riding upwards along the narrow valley within which flows the Sutlej River, in awe of Himalayan shadows and with newfound respect for the Border Roads Organization. After some grueling stretches of dirt tracks and water crossings, we enter the barren land of Spiti Valley. The landscape changes from lush green to rocky and then to barren. O/N Stay & Dinner at Tabo.

 

Day 6: Tabo – Dankhar – Kaza

Visit Tabo monastery (10,010 feet) in the morning. This monastery is famed for its vast collection of frescos and stucco paintings and is called the “Ajanta of the Himalayas”. We also visit Dankhar monastery (12,774 feet), one of the oldest monasteries in the world. The monastery is built on a high spur overlooking the confluence of the Spiti and Pin rivers. Dankhar was the capital of Spiti valley until the necessities of modern life forced it to shift to Kaza. O/N Stay & Dinner at Kaza.

 

Day 7: Kaza

A well-deserved rest day, you may use today to just chill out or check out the town. There are internet cafés in Kaza for you to go online from, if you so wish. It’s a good idea to get enough rest for the upcoming rides in the next couple of days. O/N Stay & Dinner at Kaza.

 

Day 8: Kaza – Kibber – Komic – Kaza

Kaza (11,980 Ft) is the capital of the Spiti region. Today’s highlight is the ride to the Kibber (14,200 feet) and Komic (14,830 feet) villages, the highest altitude villages in the world to be populated all year round. The village of Hikkim (14,435 feet) has the highest Post Office in the world (Pin Code 172114). It’s a good idea to mail a postcard from this Post Office as a souvenir of your journey. Finally, a visit to the beautiful Ki Gompa (aka Kee, Key), the largest monastery in Spiti, wraps up the day’s ride.

O/N Stay & Dinner at Kaza.  

 

Day 9: Kaza to Chandratal lake

Today’s ride is special because we ride over Kunzum La (15,050 feet), the highest point of the journey. The pass offers magnificent views of the Chandra-Bhaga range of mountains. Getting close to our destination, we ride on a dirt track to reach the Chandratal lake. Since vehicles are not allowed near the lake, we have to hike for 20 minutes from our campsite to this pristine Himalayan lake. We stay in swiss tents at the campsite. O/N Stay & Dinner at Chandratal lake.

 

Day 10: Chandratal lake to Manali

It’s the last day of the ride, but the initial section is quite rough and has many water crossings that will test your riding skills to the max. After crossing Batal, we behold the amazing sight of Bara-Sigri glacier, the second longest glacier in the Himalayas after Gangotri. Once on the Manali-Leh Highway, we have a comparatively smooth ride till Manali via the picturesque Rohtang pass (13,990 feet). Arrive at Manali and check into the stay facility. Overnight stay is at Manali.

Morning, after breakfast check out from the hotel and depart for return journey.
