River Chandrabagha and verdant landscape - a tailor made place for beautiful dreams !
On route Jispa from Manali I and my husband decided to make a detour through the lesser known namesake of Udaipur in Rajasthan , the Udaypur town in Lahaul Spiti .The road reminds one of umpteenth movies with nature as a romantic background ! Tiny ,colourful hutments , wild flowers , streams ,waterfalls and cute farms ! It has all !
Udaypur itself is a peaceful old town with helpful natives and ancient temples .
Markula Devi Temple is a 15th century shrine, situated in Udaipur, in Lahul and Spiti district, Himachal Pradesh. The temple is consecrated to Markula Devi, another manifestation of Goddess Durga. The temple, constructed in timber-bonded stone, is a perfect example of Himachal Pradesh architecture.
The taste of tge freshly cooked food served with warm hospitality at a dhabba still lingers in my mouth .

Lahaul and spiti are high altitude valleys of the himachal region(avg 4000m) with spiti being more barren out of the two.From manali highway one reaches gramphoo in about 70 kms(via rohtang pass) and going right from there for about another 130 kms you reach kaza(HQ SPITI)and to reach keylong(HQ LAHAUL)you just have to keep going straight from gramphoo for about 50 kms.
Both these valleys have similar languages and traditions that are also similar in the regions of ladakh and tibet.
The drive from manali to spiti is the best i hv ever experienced with mountains Jchanging colors ever so dramatically.Its best to travel by an suv or an enfield bike coz the roads disappear after gramphoo and u still dont bother .
Spiti is more visited out of the two for its old monasteries,barrenness and trekking trails..
some famous monasteries in spiti are the ones at ki,lhalung,dhankar,tabo and even kungri(pin valley).these are all motorable roads and public transportation is there too from kaza.Also no atms and mobile network except kaza and tabo in the entire region(just bsnl ).spiti also has the highest village trek from langza to dhankar.
The climate was quite funny there thou last time when i visited coz its supposed to be dry but it was raining quite a bit which led to landslides and powercuts.
Lahaul on the other hand is not so dry and is really famous for its potatoes(spiti for its peas too). thou i didnt stay here much but when i was in keylong i did make a trip to trilokinath temple..this temple was a combination of hindu and buddhist cultures(avalokiteshwara and shiva).. with prayer wheels on one side and the bells you see in a hindu temple on the other..
and from keylong ladakh too isnt that far away(heheh)

The mystagogic mountains and serene nature make you feel that you are in paradise. Autumn is the best time to visit lahaul valley as it will be less crowded and peaceful.

Lahaul and Spiti is one of the less explored places of the Himachal. The region is pity far from the more known places and takes quite some time to reach there from Delhi / Chandigarh. However, this place is not suitable for people having trouble in breathing (because of the high altitude and low oxygen level). It is also not advisable for people who have a fear with altitude / bad road conditions / not willing to take risks while travelling.
I have done the entire circuit which is listed below:
Howrah – Delhi – Shimla – Narkanda – Kalpa – Tabo – Pin Valley – Kaza – Losar - Kunzum Pass - Manali – Mandi – Chandigarh - Delhi - Howrah
