Lehan Devadhia talks about her incredible trip to Spiti Valley that she took with TravelTriangle. Being a solo traveler, she elaborates on her experiences at the wonderful places that she visited and also tells us about her encounter with the amazing kind hearted people of the hills. Her 9-day trip was a group one and it cost her INR 13,999 per person. It included her transfers, stays, meals, treks, and sightseeing.

Trip type: Tripping solo but in a group! (Get it?)
Duration: 8 nights 9 days (More than a week of adventure, yay!!)

I am a solo traveler and it gives me great joy to interact with people, make new friends but most importantly, explore new places! And this trip to Spiti Valley gave me all of it and more!

I had a very positive experience throughout my journey to the hills mainly because the arrangements by TravelTriangle team were excellent.  The organizer from TravelTriangle – Mukesh kept our comfort and convenience on priority and was always patient with us. Apart from this, I was also able to witness amazing hospitality and kindness from the local people – something which affected me deeply.

During this trip, I met my old friends from older trips and also made new ones like our guide – Manu bhaiya who turned out to be both amazing as a person and also as a guide. Together he and Mukesh were partners in crime with me!

How did you come across TravelTriangle?

I discovered TT (TravelTriangle) via Facebook when one of my friends tagged me in a post and suggested me to go on this trip. Finding it value for money, I got in touch with their representative and inquired about a zillion things before finally deciding to go on it.

Just to let you know, all of my queries were duly answered by the representative from TravelTriangle – Sumit, who was patient, calm, and available both before and during the trip. Thank you Sumit! 🙂

Preparations..

My preparations for the journey happened in a jiffy. I read a few posts about the do’s and dont’s in the hills, took account of the temperature and topography of the place post which I packed my bags and was done with all my travel essentials.

The BIG Day!

Finally, the day of the trip arrived and I reached Kashmiri Gate to board our bus at 8 PM. During this time, I was constantly in touch with Sumit, posting query after query and I am glad to say that he was very patient and understanding. (Way tooo patient!)

Day 3: Enchanting valleys and more!

(Sunday) 14th August: Sarahan to Sangla (95 km / 3 Hrs)

I got up early this morning and after taking in some fresh air, got ready to visit the famous Bhimakali temple. This temple was situated at a very pretty place and post our visit here,  we all came back to our hotel, picked up our bags, and proceeded for our next destination – Sangla.

This time, we drove past some of the most treacherous roads on our way to Sangla including Taranda Dhank (Rock cut road) and it was both a scary and exciting experience.

Upon our arrival in Sangla, we did quite a bit of sightseeing and visited Rakcham village which was a beautiful experience. We later went to Baspa river side which overlooked the beautiful mountains and valleys. It was beautiful beyond words and it truly felt as if I was in heaven!

In the evening, we went to Chitkul village where we were introduced to a local drink called lumri (apple wine) courtesy TravelTriangle. Since I had been here previously, I wanted to visit my friends and so I went searching for them. Fortunately, I was accompanied by Mukesh and Manu bhaiya who were sweet enough to help me find them.

We soon found my friends and I was truly ecstatic seeing them! We spent quite a while here and later on, returned to our hotel in Sangla. Chitkul was an amazing nostalgic experience for me and I loved my time there.

Our hotel in Sangla was once again an awesome one and even had a nice lounge to chill in.

This day, I got up early and along with others, went to see the Kamru Fort. We trekked till the fort and although it was a long walk, I found it refreshing. Later on, we had a delicious breakfast at the hotel (Food for life!)

Also today (Independence Day), Mukesh had arranged a visit for us to a local school for the flag hosting ceremony. It was really exciting and the time spent here with adorable children was simply the BEST!

Later on, we left for Kalpa and on our way were taken to really cool places like suicide point (I know!).

One good thing that I noticed throughout the trip was that both the driver, guide, and trip organizers were extremely cooperative if anyone wanted to stop midway, explore something, or just take a break from the journey. This was something which was really nice since they were thinking from the perspective of a traveler.

Our hotel in Kalpa was the best in the whole trip since the rooms were really nice, facilities were awesome, and there was even 24/7 running hot water available (wow!) – something which I hadn’t experienced during my last trip.

Later on, we had a bonfire dinner where snacks and everything were taken care by the hotel. It was awesome and I loved the whole party ambience in the hills. This day went perfectly!

We spent a lot of time here exploring the village and post a sumptuous lunch, headed for the highest village in the world – Komic (4600ft.).

We finally reached the lake and as usual clicked a lot of pictures. We even saw the ibex and I on a personal level interacted with a lot of villagers here. It was a really cool session since it gave me an insight on their lifestyle.

We also passed by the Rohtang Pass on our way back and finally in the evening reached Manali. We freshened up here for a while and after 2-3 hours left for Delhi in the bus.

My solo trip to Spiti was an awesome one! It had adventure, leisure, nature, culture, history, and more. I met kind people, I met not so kind ones too but all in all, it was an experience of a lifetime. The excellent hospitality I witnessed on this trip cannot be described in words but can only be felt from the heart. I loved every bit of the journey, from the apple wine to the food to the arrangements to my old friends and the trek – there was magic in everything.

In the end,  I would like to thank TravelTriangle and their team especially Mukesh, Manu bhaiya, and Sumit for making sure we all had a blast during the trip!

And no I am not done with the hills yet for I know it will be a lifelong journey.  A journey that I would be happy to undertake again and again! Till next time..
