    Default 2400Km of Solo Spiti Sauntering

    Haven't made a post in quite sometime here as my riding has been limited.

    To break a long period of laziness, did a solo 2400Km ride to Spiti.
    Few pictures from the ride. More on approval.



    Day 1: Nainital to Rudraprayag - The picture is from the Gagas Valley - a little below Ranikhet. The hills are lush green after the rain and crop


    Day 2: Rudraprayag to Purola - An 8 picture panorama of around the backroads of Tehri reservoir. The reservoir is visible on the far right while terraced fields are there in the middle. My bike is on the left side.


    Day 3: Purola to Sangla - A stream flows down the valley and before joining the Tons River near Mori, Uttrakhand. The road from Purola to Tiuni (border of Uttarakhand and Himanchal Pradesh) first descends through a beautiful Pine jungle to Mori and then follows the Tons river to Tiuni.


    Day 4: Sangla to Nako - Road cut through a rock overhang near Sangla. The road builders in Himanchal are pretty fond of cutting through the rock and leaving suck over hangs all over the place.


    Day 5: Nako to Dhankar - Dhankar Monastery overlooking the Spiti River Valley.


    Day 6: Dhankar to Kaza - A whim, a fancy and one turns down an unknown trail only to discover vista unseen. A small road tops a pass over the high altitude village of Komic


    Day 7: Kaza to Key/Kibber to Kaza - Moon sets over the hills across the Spiti River as the road to Key Monastery stretches ahead.


    Day 8: Kaza to Chandertal - The Lake of the moon stretches down a low depression amidst the hills.


    Day 9: Chandertal to Sundernagar - Snow capped peaks look down on the Chenab River next to a lonely stretch of road on the Batal-Grampho stretch


    Day 10: Sundernagar to Chandigarh - Fog envelops the morning as I start from Sundernagar for a short ride to Chandigarh


    Day 11: Chandigarh to Nainital - Beginning of the climb up to Nainital from Kaladhungi. Almost home after 11 days and 2400Km on the road.
