Spiti valley in June Last week

Postby kuldeep555 » Thu May 18, 2017 2:11 pm

Dear Dhiraj greetings from Kuldeep

I am passionate about long and adventure driving and very much fan of DOW community and articles posted on DOW website.
We are group of 4 friends based in Surat, Gujarat.
We have successfully done our Surat - Srinagar - Leh - Manali - Surat trip in September 2015 by road by self driven SUV, After referring DOW website and it's articles several times and making our itinerary based on advised / suggestions given by you.

We are planning to visit spiti valley by road from Surat in the last week of June this year. So once again seeking advise of "Adventure Guru"
our itinerary ( Copied from DOW website) :
June 25th Surat - Jaipur
June 26th Jaipur - Chail
June 27th Chail /Shimla ( site-seeing )
June 28th Chail / Shimla - Sangla
June 29th Sangla - chitkul - Sangle -kalpa
June 30th Kalpa – Nako – Nako Lake – Tabo
July 1st Tabo – Dhankar – Dhankar Lake – Pin Valley (Mud Village)
July 2nd Pin Valley – Kaza – Ki – Kibber – Gette – Tashigong – Kaza
July 3rd Kaza – Hikkim – Komic – Langza – Losar - Chandratal
July 4th Chandratal (till afternoon) – Kunzum Pass – Rohtang Pass – Manali
July 5th Manali site-seeing
July 6th Manali - Karnal
July 7th Karnal - Udaipur
July 8th Udaipur- Surat

Now comes the main questions...
Is this itinerary and date/month ok to visit most of places of Spiti?
Is this itinerary and date/month ok to avoid rain and landslides?
Do we found all inner roads open during this time?
Do we encounter the ice walls during this period?
Any suggestions regarding ( trip / places / topic i missed to mention )

Best Regards...

Welcome to DoW Community Kuldeep !! :)

Thanks for your kind words. Your overall plan looks OK.

However, I will recommend to skip Shimla sightseeing and spend that day in Kaza and doing Langza - Komic - Hikkim at ease. September is always a good time to visit high Himalayas including Spiti and Ladakh. All roads will be open bu no ice walls :)

Kunzam comes under rain shadow area and does not get much rains. In all probability, it should be open at that time...

Thanks Dheeraj for your suggestions and support. :)
Thanks to "getpackingvinod" for diverting Dheeraj's September coloured eyes :lol: :lol: towards colour of July 8-)

Dheeraj i am still confused about these two questions of mine....
(1) Do we found all inner roads open during this time?
(2) Do we encounter the ice walls during this period?

Yes , all inner roads open by june end , and for sure you will encounter snow walls probably Rohtang , and if you take my opinion stay at chitkul instead of sangla , i love chitkul ,beautiful and lovely chitkul.
