Hill roads are such that they work best at counteracting your best approximations… always!
Fourth day brings along its share of experiences and few of them being riding long stretches over widely varied terrain and weather.
Staying at Chandra Taal overnight and then moving towards Kaza with AMS and scarcity of Petrol. Defined the long day’s bike ride.
Gravel, Rains, slippery mud, Glacial water, River banks, Night drive on magnificent Chandra Taal and a stressed birthday boy, the only thing we did not see that day was some well-deserved rest.
Back in Jun of 2009, I had joined a newly formed biking group called ‘Nomads’. Being cousin of the original group members made it easier for me to be known to the group. For the first trip, we decided to do a Lahaul & Spiti circuit via Manali, Chandrataal, Spiti valley and back to Shimla.
