    Although far from reliable or comfortable, however, you can take bus or shared taxis to Kaza as well.

    From the looks of it, there is another snow storm approaching,
    my guess it is stronger than the one we just experienced.
    should hit by Sat or Sun which is 14th or 15th, so a good round of snowfall around 15th or 16th or even 17th


    another day or two it will become clear on intensity of snow, and when it actually arrives

    happy landings.

    This is the approaching real bad Western Disturbance and this prediction is for Sat 14Jan17.

    Watch out, and be prepared where ever you are.
    This is what is called Bad Ass. It has created -30 deg in Europe and havoc, and it is now going to hit us.
    The size of this WD can be seen by the fact it is affecting right down to Arabian Sea, so it will collect the moisture necessary to feed it and then drop it as huge quantities of snow all over, I mean all over.
    In all probability the sky will start to hint of its approach by Sat or Sun, and by Monday 16Jan17 it will be full blast over us.
    If you planning a trip to mountains, get there before this arrives, once it arrives, you wont make it to destination, be reading to heat up your food by putting it on the radiator of your car when you stuck on roads for extended periods of time. If you have kids, better carry enough food etc for them.

    If you know of friends who have plans for those dates, warn them. Get to destination before it hits, OR, delay till after the WD has passes and the authorities have had time of one or two days to clear roads. But if you are the adventurous kind, then this is the time to experience the adventure of your life, get on the road, and be on the road when hits.

    For those planning trip to anywhere in the mountains,
    better get in by Sat 15 Jan 17,
    or you gonna spend many hours or a night on the road in snow and in a jam.

    This prediction is for Sat 15 Jan 17

    So if you missed standing outside and fell the snow flakes falling on you,
    well, this is the time to get there by Friday or Saturday.

    Two of us want to go to Spiti via Shimla and Rampur on a bike, starting from January 26. Have been to Ladakh and Spiti, road trips, in summer before. Are there any major problems riding a bike there at this time ? ( Cold is not an issue for us )

    1. Black ice and snow on the road.

    2. Snowfall can close the road for a few days.

    3. Only a handful of basic guest houses are open at the moment.
