It is every bikers dream to get Leh’d at least once in his Life. But a close reality to Leh called Spiti situated in the heart of Himachal Pradesh is an equally exciting place for a motorcyclist to set his foot on.
1. Spiti calls for breath taking valleys and lakes
If Pangong Lake seems far fetch or too much hassle, Chandra Taal will make up for the distance you couldn’t reach and you would not be disappointed at all. Since this fresh water lake is 14,000 feet above sea level. The breath-taking combination of valleys and lake would leave one in awe.
2. Picturesque surroundings, mesmerising roads
Want to get that “wind in my hair, like I don’t care” kinda feel. This place will not only give you the adrenaline but a sense of beauty that will tickle your nerves right after the adrenaline.
The Tibet highway that leads to Spiti is work of an art. Bikers will constantly be battling on the way with the tricky track that leads to a heavenly sight.
3. Wonderful on the plate, wonders to your palate
Relish in the wonderfully aromatic food on the ride to Spiti, everything on the plate would taste nothing like the ordinary, right from the Thukpa to Momos.
And after all, what does a Biker need to satiate his hunger in frost biting temperatures?
Hot Sku or Pava, these local assortments are a sheer delight.
4. The Challenge and the Adrenaline
The stretch of 432 kms is mostly dirt track and broken roads. The conditions are average to good. These conditions make it a favourable ride as most riders long for adventure that they otherwise don’t receive on city roads. The balance that one needs to maintain while manoeuvring carefully through the uneven terrain.
5. No Pollution, clear skies
Away from the concrete jungle, far from the regular walks of life, ride in Spiti serves with air that is so pure that it is a detoxification in itself. No pollution allows clear skies which look beautiful during night time. So, go camp out, light a bonfire and let the winds speak to you while your bike cools down from long but happy journey.
