Himalayan Drive – Lahaul & Spiti

Trip Overview

“We are now in the mountains and they are in us, kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us.” If you wish to capture this feeling, rendered beautifully into words by legendary mountaineer John Muir, then our Lahaul & Spiti Drive is just what the doctor ordered. To be flagged off from Chandigarh – this self-driven expedition will have you zipping through postcard-pretty towns like Theog, Sangla, Tabo, Kaza and Manali which proves true to the moniker it popularly goes by – ‘Valley of the Gods”. Piping hot chai, crisp mountain air, picturesque spots that make for idyllic photo backdrops, rolling hills, verdant valleys, and you behind the wheel of a roaring 4×4 – this is an opportunity like none other to revitalise body and soul. We promise, you will find yourself yearning to make unscheduled stops to just take in scenes that portray the unbelievable artistry of nature to perfection. So, buckle up, and get ready to gambol through one of God’s best works of art.
