Really ? Do we need another travelogue on Kinnaur & Spiti here ? There are already, maybe 2872 travelogues out there on BCMTouring ! So much so that Yogesh is seriously thinking of specifying a qualification for membership - you ought to have done at least 5 Spiti trips before being allowed in as a member (ha ha) ! So why one more log ? Well, the state is so beautiful that even the 2873rd travelogue won't be too tiring. And this member loves to hear the sound of his own voice; or at least the sight of his written word ! Plus there is no penalty to adding to the weight of the Travelogues Section. And maybe, there is a hidden snippet or two yet to be told. So, off we go. A few compromises though. We'll let Sangha Tenzing be in peace. If he had known that camera toting travellers would make a beeline to Gue, he probably would have let the scorpions wreak havoc on the village (the reason it is said he became a mummy). And the tall claim that NH5 is the most treacherous road in the world is complete balderdash ; so no photos of the "infamous" board. I'll also try not to post the same photos of the usual Kinnaur & Spiti vistas - BCMT servers are already groaning with them) Solo drive, as all my trips are. From Bangalore to Himachal and back. The car - Hyundai Xcent AT. 90,000 kms on the odometer and the heart of a Hercules. This trip was 8000 kms door to door over 30 days of roaming around between mid Sep and mid Oct, 2018. Yes, this was during the time the heavens opened up, washed away the bus, etc etc. A map of the operational end of the trip, disregarding the dash from Bangalore to Chandigarh and back. No teasers. After all, what is there to tease about Himachal !
