After visiting Tabo we will head towards one the oldest monastery in the world, known as Dhankar monastery. This day will be all about exploring the culture of Spiti.

Day 8 Kaza-Chandratal
8th day of the bike expedition marks the visit to the world’s most beautiful lake Chandratal. This lake is so surreal and calm that one has to rub his or her eyes in order to believe it actually exists. The most interesting thing which motorbike expeditions team does here is that we take all the mobile phones from our fellow travelers and insist them to just enjoy nature rather than clicking pictures. The folk Flores related to this place also suggests that there have been several cases when people have spotted unidentified flying objects in the region. After spending some valuable time and exploring the sky blue lake Chandratal we head towards our stay for the night.
Day 9 Chandratal to Manali

If someone wants to understand the real adrenaline rush as a biker then Chandratal to Manali is a route for you. After reaching Batal we will witness the second largest glacier of Himalayas Bara Sigri on the way to Chatru. One more Interesting thing which one experiences on the way to Chatru from Batal is the famous Chota Dhara Nala, the most dangerous Himalayan Nala.
