Spiti Valley DAY 4 - Nako to Kaza

Day 3

Its day 4, we woke up at 5 Am to get a head start as we had a big plan for the day.To my surprise there was sufficient light, and the climate was very pleasant. Just like any other good photographer I started my day by clicking some beautiful snaps of the picturesque view.

Midway through our journey, low on power passion found it difficult to climb on steep roads. This was evident because of the black smoke coming out of the exhaust.We cleaned the spark plug, but that didnt resolved the problem. Due to high altitude,engine was not getting enough air to churn out enough power.

We asked around for some mechanic but there was no one available till KAZA and as if the things couldnt get any worse, there was news of landslide ahead so we had no other option but to wait for more than 2 hrs.

After the road was cleared, we continued our journey, the road didnt had any steep hills so we managed to pull the passion across.

We stopped at Tabo Village to have something to eat. To our dismay the hotel didnt have anything other than Fried Rice. After having our lunch we visited the Tabo Monastery. Visited the Beautiful Tabo Monastery clicked some shots and started to our journey to Pin valley.

We reached to pin valley around 4, but we decided to return from half way,and skip visiting the MUD village, so that we could reach KAZA on schedule.

We reached to KAZA at 7:45 Pm , but as it was a big village, this gave us ample amount of time to look around for places to stay during the night.
