Day 1 The conquest of Jalori
Day 3 Kinnaurified
Today, started my day early morning at 6:00 am, so decided to go off for a walk around in Nako.During my walk soon I came across a serene and calm small lake. Enthralled by the beauty of nature there, I decided to click around there and in village area.After I came back had breakfast with Roushan and then decided to take a quick walk around the lake again as he hasn’t been to lake due to late sleeping.
Afterwards we started our ride towards Kaza.Roads there were in prime condition so it was real fun riding in the Himalayas. In no time we reached Chango and then from there to Sumdo Post and then we left from Kinnaur to Spiti valley.As Roushan was having permits for Kaurik we parted our roads and I took my way to Geu Village to get blessings from 500 yrs old Mummy which was found in Geu Village few years back while ITBP guys were cutting the rocks. It was fun offroading till Geu and in approximate 02 hours. People are building new Monastery alongside the Mummy and it was quite chilly experience there as very cold winds were blowing at the place. Even i couldn’t spot a single tea shop in whole village and the place have to be develop soon to attract the tourists to the Village.
I joined back the main road towards Tabo Monestry. Ride was good on a bright sunny day but the roads getting worse and worse after Chango. It was fun ride and reached Tabo around noon. After having lunch explored the monastery a bit and started my journey back towards Kaza.
On the way saw the road towards Dhankar Monastery so visited there but half heartedly skipped Dhankar lake for the next time ride into the valley again. Around evening reached Kaza hired a room and waited for Roushan who reached around 9:30pm.It was tiring day but had fun, Dream of getting to Spiti valley was getting fulfilled.
Here are few pics of the ride and I think i need not speak let the pictures speak.
