Unexplored Spiti Valley Motorbike Tour 2019-20 - 9 Days

Unexplored Spiti Valley Motorbike Tour 2019-20

Spiti valley lies in the north-eastern part of Himachal Pradesh, a Himalayan state in India. Spiti means The middle land, in reference to it lying between mainland India and Tibet.

Spiti is cut off from the rest for India from November to May every year due to heavy snowfall. This means that on the tour we have 30-70 mix of paved and unpaved roads with numerous stream crossings. An ideal place for an adventure motorcyclist. But this ride is not just about adventure, the landscape is stunningly beautiful and changes harmoniously from lush green to barren mountains to lush green again. You also visit some of the oldest Buddhist monasteries for a rich cultural experience, ride across three high-altitude passes, visit the highest villages in the world to remain populated year-round and to top it all off, ride to Chandratal lake, a beautiful high-altitude lake in the Himalayas.

A motorcycle ride to the remote Spiti valley is by no means easy, but using our experience we have crafted a route that lets you have a comfortable stay after each days gruelling ride and return home saying you had the ride of your life.

The trip starts with you arriving in Bhuntar, where you will meet your bikes for the Bhuntar to spiti bike trip. You will take a test ride to Parvati valley (Kasol) and will leave with your bikes for Spiti the very next day. Crossing Jalori Pass, Kalpa, Nako, Dhankar Village, Kaza, Komic, Hikkim, etc you will arrive in Spiti. You will pay visits to the Spiti Valley, and Kunzam Pass, Chandertal Lake etc before returning to Bhuntar via Rohtang Pass and Manali. These 09 days will leave you in awe of the beauty of this place and will keep you coming back for more.

Day 1 Arrive in Bhuntar

You need to arrive either by Volvo Bus, or by flight till Bhuntar airport in Kullu from New Delhi at our designated hotel in Bhuntar by 12 noon, where you will meet the Kzaal Bike Rentals Bhuntar team and your co-riders. The road captain briefs everyone on the route and the day-wise plan. Post that, you will be handed over the Himalayan motorcycles which you would be riding for the rest of the tour.

Day 2 Bhuntar to Jibhi/Shoja

We start off the ride and head south, riding with the Beas river by our side. We head towards Jibhi/Shoja, a small village situated in the Tirthan Valley . Before checking into the Village Cottages/Guesthouse, you take a detour on a dirt track nearby, to get accustomed to the Royal Enfield & the terrain that you will encounter later in the tour.

Day 3 Jibhi/Shoja to Kalpa

We leave Jibhi/Shoja and ride along the Great Himalayan National Park, to cross the stunning, but steep Jalori pass (10,800 feet) through picturesque Deodhar woods. This is a challenging part of the day’s journey because the road goes from bad to worse towards the top, with some tricky curves thrown in as well. After the descent from Jalori pass, we ride on the famous Hindustan-Tibet Highway along the Satluj river. A tarmac road with easy riding conditions with beautiful views of the Satluj till Kalpa. Kalpa, a small town is home to the delicious Kinnaur Apples. Kalpa also offers a spectacular view of one of the holiest mountains in India - Kinner Kailash.

Day 4 Kalpa to Nako

After an early breakfast, we ride north along the narrow valley within which flows the Satluj river, in awe of Himalayan shadows and into the high altitude region of Himachal. After some gruelling stretches of dirt tracks and water crossings, we enter the barren land of Spiti Valley. The landscape changes from lush green to rocky, and then to barren. Your stay tonight is in Swiss tents with attached toilets in the small but pristine Nako Village, near the Nako Lake.

Day 5 Nako to Kaza Via Dhankar

Being an easy riding day, we visit Tabo monastery (10,010 feet) in the morning. This monastery is famed for its vast collection of frescos and stucco paintings and is called the "Ajanta of the Himalayas". We also visit Dhankar monastery (12,774 feet), one of the oldest monasteries in the world. The monastery is built on a high spur overlooking the confluence of the Spiti and Pin rivers. The second half of the day will be reserved for much needed rest.

Day 6 Kaza - Hikkim - Komic - Kaza

Kaza (11,980 Ft) is the capital of the Spiti region. Today's highlight is the ride to Hikkim (14,400 feet) and Komic (14,830 feet) villages, the highest altitude villages in the world to be populated all year round. The village of Hikkim has the highest Post Office in the world (Pin Code 172114). It's a good idea to mail a postcard to yourself and your loved ones from this Post Office as a souvenir of your journey. Finally, a visit to the beautiful Ki Gompa (aka Kee, Key), the largest monastery in Spiti, wraps up the day's ride.

Day 7 Kaza to Chandratal

Today's ride is special in many ways, what with the ever changing landscape which will leave you mesmerised. We also ride over Kunzum La (15,050 feet), the highest altitude of the ride. The pass offers magnificent views of the Chandra-Bhaga range of mountains. Getting close to our destination, we ride on a narrow dirt track to reach the Chandratal lake. Since vehicles are not allowed near the lake, we have to hike for 25 minutes to this pristine Himalayan lake. The stay for the night will be in swiss tents at a campsite.

Day 8 Chandratal Lake to Manali

The initial section of the ride is quite rough and has many water crossings that will test your riding skills to the max. After crossing Batal, we behold the amazing sight of Bara-Sigri glacier, the second longest glacier in the Himalayas after Gangotri. Once on the Manali-Leh Highway, we have a comparatively smooth ride till Manali. The landscape changes again from barren to lush green. We cross the scenic Rohtang pass down to the sight of lush green Himalayan mountains and waterfalls that appear out of nowhere. After the descent from the pass, you ride into Manali, a popular hill station in the Himalayas.

Day 9 Manali to Bhuntar - 50km

The last day of Unexplore Spiti motorbike tour.

I had the best experience this time. It was an impromptu trip and we started from delhi and after seeing the review for bike rentals. We had a talk with him and he even came to the bus stop to pick us up. And his bikes are brand new and well maintained.You don't have to think about the quality.its the best in entire Himachal. I had taken brand new himalaya BS4 sleet grey with tough look. The bike was brand new and just completed 300kms.And the mileage was also great With 500 rs petrol we went to jalori pass and came back. Price is also fare and his name is Akshay Thakur and he is a good and reliable guy to do business with..
