I am planning a tour from Lucknow- Spiti-Leh-Delhi. This is my first when I am travelling to Leh. I would really appreciate if you can help me with available transport, hotels and places to visit.
I am travelling solo so I am not looking for 5 star hotels instead I would love to stay in mud houses, hostels and tents.
Here’s my questions:
- Best time to visit.
- Medicine (if require)
- Cheap transport ( I am also a rider, if the road is good, I can take my bike)
- Permits (If any)
- Any specific rules and regulations to ride a bike ( In case, I am riding)
Thanks in advance!
Happy new year to all the members!
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.
You can get connected directly to some drivers in Himachal or Spiti Valley or Kinnaur Valley at the link: List of Taxi Drivers for Spiti Valley & Kinnaur Valley. These drivers can come and pick you up from Manali / Shimla / Delhi / Chandigarh too, of course with a price of the pickup as well.
The rates of the taxis are about Rs 3500 per day depending on the number of days you plan to travel, more the days, less the price. If you are 2-3 in the group, you can opt for sedan taxi cars as well which charges around Rs 2200 per day.
Otherwise, taxis, in general, are also available on the spot from Shimla or Manali from respective taxi stands. These drivers can help you with finding local stay options too.
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.
