    Thank you Swapnil, You can check a very balanced and most common itinerary for Spiti Valley followed by many travellers including me at the link here for 10-11 days: Most Common Itinerary for Spiti Valley.
    For stay options in Kinnaur and Spiti, check the link: Some Good Options of Stays in Spiti Valley / Kinnaur Valley.

    You can keep an average of 900-1200 per person per day for food and stay on the tour to Spiti Valley.

    I will request that you please refer the following articles for planning a trip to Spiti Valley: Spiti Valley via Manali | How to Plan Your Journey AND Spiti Valley via Kinnaur | How to Plan Your Journey

    They have all the details. Feel free to let me know in case of any doubts

    Hi, dheeraj,
    Thanks for the plethora of information ,you provided.
    While sifting through the pages, somehow i could not find any information on “renting bikes at shimla (our starting point ).

    Shimla is not a hub for bike rentals so you won’t find one easily or cheap for that matter. Chandigarh or Delhi is a better place to rent if your going in that direction.

    hi,
    recent development- our grp guys are not comfortable with pre-booking the accommodation, they want a back-pack sort of tour but with bikes, i.e. Locate and Book stay as and where we arrive.

    Any suggestions on above?

    thanks
    swapnil

    That is completely possible, just follow the Leave Early, Sleep Early principle that we preach to all adventurits and you can afford to book on the spot as well 🙂
