  • dheerajsharma14 on #22163

    Just as similar to thread for Ladakh Taxi Drivers, I am starting this thread for collating the list of Taxi drivers from Spiti Valley or Kinnaur Valley. I will request everyone to please keep on adding to the list below. I will keep the main thread updated.

    Please post a short description of driver if possible along with the vehicle he owns and charges he offer for his services. A picture will be more helpful for anyone to connect with him or her but that is quite secondary.

    Brother you can reach Tsering at 09418208987. Sakya abode is just in front of Tangyudd Sakya Monastery, Kaza. Snow Lion is on the other side of the stream in front of Sakya Abode only. He has couple of home stays too, which I loved staying at. Also, he started another one as Kumphen which is in the complex of monastery itself. So, all three are near by to each other. You can refer my name or DoW, I am sure he will provide you the best of the rates :) :)

    Rates are not too high bro, Sakya Abode is around 1000-1200 types but totally worth it. Also, you can opt for homestays there but then you need to come to hotel for eating food.
