I reached Langza on Stretcher | Winters in Spiti Valley

The most beautiful sunset I have witnessed in Kaza. It was time to leave after spending a week in Kaza Spiti Valley, meeting new people and exploring the streets. My days in Kaza, Spiti was nothing short of heaven. I have watched everything from the rising sun to the shining moon. I planned to trek…

Empty Kibber Village | Spiti Valley | Winters in Spiti

I reached Kibber Village around 10 AM (click here to read the last post in case you have missed it). As soon as I enter the village I see locks on every homestay, hotel and house. To tell you, I was aware that there could be fewer people in the village but seeing no human…

-28 degree Celsius in Spiti Valley | Kibber Village

I went well prepared for winters in Spiti Valley, keeping in mind about the negative temperatures and dry weather conditions. Kaza, the hub of Spiti Valley was my base camp throughout this one month trip, and let me tell you, Kaza was the coldest in comparison to all the villages of Spiti I visited. It…

A Miraculous Night | Langza in Winters

I trekked to Langza from Kaza with a dozen of kids. Everyone cheered me up, to just keep walking until we reached Langza post sunset. Everybody went to there home and I went to Phan Dhey Homestay, the best in Spiti Valley. After a hectic day, we had dinner while discussing why heavy snowfall is…

So, this time, I ventured on for this mystical beauty that keeps its mysteries intact within. Choices were quite…

Postcards from Spiti Valley

Almost two month since I came back from Spiti; and I still can’t believe my eyes off. Walking down the memory lane, loving everything I felt & experienced. Living a dream is special; but Spiti to me is on some other level. Just being there was enough of all that the weather be icing on the…

Some good-byes aren’t easy!

So now it is ending! I have no place left in my itinerary. It is time to go back to the world of commoners, to run after everything just to end up catching nothing. To be in a world where no one’s existence matters and where we aren’t free to be ourselves in order to…

Spiti Diaries ( Day 6 ) Langza – Chandertaal via Kunzum

In last post we reached Langza Village (at 14,500ft) dying with hunger. Our car stopped in front of Phan Dey Home Stay and we rushed in to ask if some food can be cooked. Doors of that house were opened by a man in his mid-forties. His eyes were filled with warmth, completely in contrast…

Spiti Diaries ( Day 5 ) Chicham-Key Gompa – Komik – Hikkim

In last post we reached Kibber and found a place to pitch our tents. Then we started trekking to a village called Chicham. We could have travelled to chicham in our car, but it was only 4 o’clock so we thought trekking would be a better idea. We just knew it was 4-5kms away and…

Spiti Diaries ( Day 4 ) Tabo – Pin Valley – Kibber

In last post we reached Tabo and charged our gadgets while having dinner. In this post I will elaborate about witnessing galaxies in Tabo, way to Pinvalley and Kibber. As we walked out of the eating point (that was neither like a restaurant nor a dhaba) moon was nowhere to be seen, just the stars….
