Very early morning, today we head to Spiti valley which will take around 10 hours (220 km). We leave early in the morning as we have a long way to go and ascend the mighty Rohtang Pass, to begin with. We shall spend some time at the pass and then head towards Gramphoo for breakfast. From Gramphoo you shall start noticing the change in terrain where you will see less trees and more of steep mountain peaks and beginning of barren landscape. From here we head towards Chatru and face some of the biggest waterfalls crossing the road which can be a nightmare for any non-experienced driver. The terrain will take drastic change from Chatru and all you will see is rocks all over with huge streams crossing the road and converging in the ruthless Chandra river. We shall take regular halts for you to absorb the place, admire it and feel the fresh air. From here we head to Kunzum Pass and pay our regards to the Kunzum Goddess and enter Spiti valley. The jumpy ride with the non-existent road which started from Gramphoo will end in Lohsar. From Lohsar head to Kaza after a small break. It will take another 2 hours of a beautiful journey. Reach Kaza, check-in and enjoy a cup of tea. This tiring day will end with a gaze at the gorgeous sky of a million stars and a prominent milky way.
