    Hi
    After asking here at DoW – we finally did the Spiti circuit last week and came back only yesterday…
    This trip was planned after reading a lot on DoW .. so thank you Dheeraj and Others

    24 May – Mumbai to Delhi with 6 PM Indigo flight and then move on to Chandigarh via train
    25 May– Reached Chandigarh at 8 AM , started for Kalpa , broke the journey in between at Jhakdi. Stayed at hotel Mahesh, Its an adequate stay for one night
    26 May– Jhakdi to Tabo via a quick stop at Nako. Stayed at hotel Snow lion – a good hotel with a nice view
    27 May– Tabo to Pin Valley , stayed at Gulling with Tandup Homestay – I heartily recommend the homestay.
    28 May– stayed at pin valley – visited the river bed with Mr Tandups 4X4 , took ride upto Mudh and the a drive up in the pin valley national park to see the formations
    29 May– went to Kaza via Damul – enjoyed excellent vistas – stayed in kaza
    30 May– went to hikkim/Langza and then back to Kaza
    31 May– went from Kaza to Chandratal via Key-kibber- chicham bridge – losar- kunzum pass and then chandrtal …. Stayed at Parasol camps – again will recommend heartily. But in hindsight , I would have reduced a day Kaza and then stopped at losar. It was a long drive that day
    1 June – Chandratal to Manali via Rohtang – we stayed in Naggar and wasted 3-4 hours in traffic – in hind sight I would have stayed at Solnag Valley

    2 June – relaxed in Manali – did the para gliding etc with my Kid
    3 June – Moved to Kullu and post a quick river rafting session – moved to Chandigarh – another long day on hind sight I would have started back on 2nd June and then stayed in Mandi on 2nd night
    4 June – Took the flight back from Chandigarh to Mumbai
