We (3 of us) are planning a trip to manali-spiti-manali between 2-10 june. 2nd is departure from manali and 10th is arrival from kaza. I have the following queries –
1> Whether I’ll be able to get Manali – Kaza HRTC bus on 2nd june ? I mean will it be operating that early in the season ?
2> Whether I’ll be able to get Kaza- Manali bus on 10th june ?
3> Are their any shared taxi options available from manali to kaza and kaza to manali ? Will they be operational during that time and how much it will cost ?
Answers to the above mentioned questions will be very much appreciated as I am unable to find any reliable info on the internet.
And keep up the good work man, this is such a great forum for all travel enthusiasts 🙂
BRO is still working hard to widen the road at Kunzum Pass. Unless it gets wide, HRTC bus will not start. So, if weather is holding up in next few days, I believe it shall be OK by the time you plan to travel. Otherwise you will surely get local shared taxis running between Kaza and Manali for sure. The drop will cost you about 1300-1500
Thank you Dheeraj.
Also, is there any need to pre-book motorcycles in kaza,,,I’ll be needing it to visit various places in spiti, or it will be fine if I book on spot. And do you have any referrals ?
Thee are no motorbike rentals in Kaza. You will have to rely on shared taxis or hitch hikes.
