DETAILS

Day 1
Shimla (7467ft) to Reckong Peo/Kalpa (7513 ft)

Private Vehicle

Homestay

Dinner

Get ready for a beautiful drive of 250 km to Reckong peo via Rampur route. We drive down from Shimla and cross over to the other side of the river, and follow the Hindustan - Tibet road to Reckong Peo, the principal township in Kinnaur.
Reckong Peo is considered to be the land of Gods and is a splendid beauty showcased by the Himalayas. The town is serene and is famous for its apple orchards. It is inhabited by Kinnauri people and has a diverse culture even in today's modern era.

From Peo, a climb brings us to the beautiful village of Kalpa, nestled amongst apple orchards and Chilgoza pine trees. Kalpa and a couple of villages around it such as Chini and Roghi, provide some of the most spectacular views of the Kinner Kailash range across the valley. We will spend the night at Homestay and indulge in some local food.


Day 2
Reckong Peo (7513 ft) to Tabo (10760ft) via Nako (12000 ft) and Giu

Private Vehicle

Homestay

Breakfast, Dinner

Our journey today takes us to Tabo village, reknowned for the ancient Tabo Monastery. Tabo is a small village, situated on the left bank of river Spiti in the Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh. Flanked on either side by hills, it houses one of the most important Buddhist monastery, that is regarded by many as only next to the Tholing Gompa in Tibet. This monastery is said to be over a thousand years old, founded back in 996 A.D.

To reach Tabo, we pass through the peaceful and picturesque Nako village which is perched on the banks of the Nako lake. We spend some time here before we take a short detour to Giu to see the famous 500-years-old mummy of a Buddhist monk.


Day 3
Tabo (10760ft) to Mud via Dhankar (12700 ft)

Private Vehicle

Homestay

Breakfast, Dinner

After breakfast, we start from Tabo to Dhankar village. The beautiful Dhankar Village is one of the most stunning attractions in Lahual and Spiti Valley, a home to the most beautiful and awe-inspiring Dhankar Monastery and Dhankar Fort that are perched on the top of the hill in Dhankar. Dhankar looks like a bowl-shaped structure in the hills. It looks almost as if all the old Dhankar houses and fort have emerged straight from the mountains with their back wall being merged on the hill.

We have lunch at Dhankar and then head off to Mud to explore th Pin Valley. Mud is the last motorable village of the Pin Valley. Mud village also acts as the base for trekking route towards or from Pin-Parvati Pass or Bhabha Valley. The views in the entire Pin Valley including Mud village is just majestic, and the valley is mostly virgin, serene, barren and beautiful.


Day 4
Mud (12361 ft) to Kaza (12500 ft)

Private Vehicle

Homestay

Breakfast, Dinner

Today is a relaxed day. After breakfast, we drive to Kaza, the capital and the largest settlement of Spiti region. This is also our last place with an ATM and petrol bunk. Being the largest settlement in Spiti Valley, it is well-equipped to meet needs of travellers. We spend the evening exploring this quaint village and call it a day.


Day 5
Day trip to Key & Kibber (14200ft)

Private Vehicle

Homestay

Breakfast, Dinner

Key – Kibber – Gette – Tashigang are places around Kaza in Spiti Valley which can be easily explored in a day and hence, today, after breakfast we head off for a day trip to these places.

Key Monastery is a beautiful Tibetan Buddhist monastery situated right on top of a hill at an altitude of 13500 ft. The monastery has some really beautiful scriptures and paintings of Lord Buddha and other gods. The Key gompa is also famous for its priceless collection of ancient thangkas, including Tibetan silk thangkas upto 800 years old and frescoes depicting the life of Padmasambhava. There is a Key Village that comes just before the Key monastery. The views from this vantage point are just breathtaking from where you can also view Rangrik Village across the Spiti River.

About 9-10 KMs from Key Monastery ahead and at an altitude of 14200ft, there lies another beautiful village named Kibber. You will surely enjoy the drive from Key monastery to Kibber where the road is not that paved but the views are very enchanting once you reach Kibber. Spend some time in this timeless village as well to feel the culture around. The houses in Kibber village are unique to Spiti as most of them are made of stones instead of mud or brick used extensively in other parts of the Spiti Valley though looks similar to what you might have seen yet in Spiti. The vistas surrounding the Kibber and Gette villages are all mountains of limestone rocks which adds more colours to this beautiful valley.

After spending some time at Kibber, we head back to Kaza in the evening.


Day 6
Kaza (12500ft) to Hikkim (14400ft) to Koumik (15027 ft) to Langza (14500ft)

Private Vehicle

Homestay

Breakfast, Dinner

The Langza, Hikkim, and Koumik are three villages above Kaza. They are one of the highest motorable villages in the world. We start our journey from Kaza post breakfast and make our first pit stop at Hikkim. The road from Kaza to Hikkim will give you goosebumps at certain sections being too narrow overlooking a 1000 Mtrs vertical drop down to Kaza.
The Hikkim village has the honor of having the highest post office and polling station in the world. Do not forget to send a postcard to your loved ones from here.
After Hikkim, we drive to Koumik, a village which is famous for having the highest motorable monastery in the world. According to locals, it is believed that this monastery houses some hidden treasures which are made to public only once in 60 years due to security concerns. This includes an egg of a dragon, the horn of a unicorn, the upper tooth of a sheep, the ribcage of a giant demon and the tail of a prehistoric man.
After Koumik we head off to Langza, popularly known for hunting marine fossils and breathtaking view of Chau Chau Kang Nelda peak sitting on top of the village. If you are fond of fossils, you can hike a bit higher around Langza village, look around/beneath the rocks to observe some ancient fossils. You can also visit Chaudua (Fossil) center in Langza village to know more about these fossils. Apart from the breathtaking landscape, the presence of a big, 1000 year odd old Lord Buddha statue in the meadow makes Langza as heavenly as one possibly can imagine. It is one of the most beautiful villages of entire Spiti Valley. We stay overnight at a homestay in Langza.


Day 7
Langza (14500ft) to Chandratal Lake.

Private Vehicle

Tents

Breakfast, Dinner

It is a final leg of our journey and the most trecherous one. Chandratal lake in Spiti Valley is considered to be one of the most beautiful lakes in Himachal Pradesh. A trip to Chandratal would mean a mix of adventure and raw, desolate nature. You can reach this pristine lake by traversing through the most treacherous roads .
We will reach chandratal by noon and spend the evening beside lake.


Day 8
Chandratal to Manali

Private Vehicle

Stay Not Applicable

Breakfast

We will start our journey back to manali today. The Kaza - Manali route is not for the faint hearted. The road is rough and you have to cross several strams and high passes. Start early today.
The road to Manali takes you through 2 high altitude passes, Khunzum La at 15000 ft and Rohtang at 13000 ft.

"The Great Escape" upholds its name, literally! Among the couple of trekking organisations that I have hiked with in Himalayas, TGE is one of the best. They plan the trek very well, adapting the route and camping locations to factors like weather and the footfall. The support staff is experienced and deft, food great, and trekking practices "green". The organisers themselves are friendly and look after the group well. At the same time, they are firm, decisive, and in a mode of continuous improvement! It is a pleasure trekking with TGE, and I would highly recommend them! Good luck Reetu & Jamila...and keep rocking !

I have attended only one trip/event with TGE as of now and I loved it. It was well organized, the organizer was really cooperative and helped everyone in the team to make the trip a memorable one. I'd highly recommend this group to all friends and family and would love to attend their future events. Thank you.
