    Default पति-पत्नी in Spiti on CBZ-Xtreme

    Day1, 1oth August: Chandigarh to Puh

    I had to cancel my Ladakh ride third time consecutively this year also and was feeling very bad because of this. I know Ladakh is a must visit place but nobody says it is the only.
    Hence by anyhow, Ill have to compensate the same. After a long discussion (read brainwashing) both of us agreed to visit Spiti, though she was more interested in Chandrataal only because of obvious reason that Spiti was just another place for her.
    Sandeep Mohan was asking me for the same for last couple of days but I was not sure of anything until 8pm before the D-day. But I could not contact him as his cell went not reachable since I started trying.
    Two of us left home as late as by 5.30am in the morning of 10th AUG. it felt as if we were following the rain all the way from Chandigarh to Solan and then upto Narkanda. Wherever we went found washed roads. No encounters with the rain so far which resulted in good average speed. We crossed Narkanda by 10.30. on a turn near Jeori, I saw a guy walking with his RE and face covered in a red red cloth. I took no time in making out that he is Sandeep. He had some problem with his bike which we rectified and moved along the beautiful lush green NH22.
    We have planned to go as far as possible on day one, like Nako or Tabo. But we could make only 390 kms and halted at PWD rest house at Puh. The journey so far was certainly beautiful but this being our frequent route, I was least bothered to capture anything. No pics, just one:

    I feel nostalging riding through deep gorges of Kinnaur:


    Day2: Puh Tabo Dhankar

    Since we decided as late as mere few hours before the ride, I didnt had a chance to get the bike serviced which was showing its ill effects while ascending Kazig loops before Nako. It was missing every now and then. Sometimes I had to ask my better half to walk up the ascends. I thought the bike woul be back to normal breathing as I finish the loops but I was wrong, the problem kept on worsening and a few kilometers before Malling, even I had to walk with the bike along the slightest of the ascend
    Somwhow I crossed Malling and then descend started to Chango where I replaced the carbon coated spark plug and cleaned air filter. Now it was back to normal life and singing with each feeling of ours. On the way we visited the mummy at Geyu village followed by Tabo monastery before calling off our day at Dhankar in Monastic Guest house. Next morning we would be visiting Dhankar lake which is mere 3 kms away.

    Sandeep sir at Kasang Nullah bridge:

    Bike pushing before Malling


    Face-to-Face ate Geyu, I still wonder what she was analysing:


    ise kahte hain "apne pairon pe khada hona"
    a self watering khudgarj hand pump:


    Junglee Hiran, as somebody called it


    Colurful mountains, the Trademark of upper himalayas:


    Foto-shoot over the gushing Spiti river:


    Shanti-Stupa at Tabo monastery, no words for this beauty:


    Female & Flowers: Everlasting bond


    I call it haunted road:

    Excellent photos.
    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.
