Cover Sangla and Chitkul en route to Kalpa.

Do Kalpa to Nako or Tabo, this will give you more time for sightseeing in Spiti Valley.

Not planning to visit Chandertal?

Hi Yogesh Sir!

We can go to Chandertaal if road open. Do you have any news about the road status to Chandertal?

Updated plan is:
17th - Chandigarh - Sarahan
18th - Sarahan - Chitkul - Kalpa
19th - Kapla - Nako
20th - Nako - Gue - Tabo - Kaza
21th - Kaza - Hikam - Langza - Kaza
22th - Kaza - Key - Kibber - Chicham - Kaza
23th - Kaza - Chandertal
24th - Chandertal - Manali
25th - Manali - Chandigarh

I do not have an idea about road status beyond Shimla. Could we stretch 1st day to Kapla if we start early?

Or can we skip Kalpa if there is nothing to see? And do like this..
Sarahan - Chitkul
Chitkul - Nako

Also, should I need to book hotels in advance or go straight?

Thanks in advance! Cheers!!

The road to Chandertal is open.

You can do Chandigarh to Kalpa in a day if you want to push. But my advice would be to take it easy and go with your itinerary. It seems fine.

Book accommodation at Sarahan, Kalpa and Manali. Rest of the places you can book on the spot.

I guess internet would be fine till Kalpa with On/off mode.. it will go zero in Chitkul before that :)

Hi Gaurav,

I just reached Manali today and will like to share road status with you..

Day1: Chandigarh - Chail - Kufri - Narkand - Rampur - Jeory - Sarahan
- Roads are excellent till Jeory
- Jeory to Sarahan is closed due to bridge work and diversion road is pathetic and only experienced driver can drive on this steep incline.
- Better to stay at Rampur.

Day2: Sarahan - Rekongpeo - Kalpa
- Mix with good and bad but overall easy drive.

Day3: Kalpa - Pooh - Nako
- Road is dangerous till Pooh after that you can go smooth.
- Road widening is in progress.

Day4: Nako - Tabo - Kaza
- Narrow road but smooth drive with some tricky patches.

Day5: Kaza - Kibber - Chicham - Langza - Kaza
- Road is good but narrow.
- Be careful on some narrow blind curves.

Day6: Kaza - Losar - Batal - Manali
- Doable till Losar.
- After Losar you will just prey and drive.
- Only 4x4 suggested. However, some local Alto's and Omni's doing good. :p
- There is no tar from Losar to Manali only Kacha/Pathreela road.

Day7: Will leave tomorrow for Chandigarh.

Will post pictures and videos once reached Chandigarh.

TIP: Try to find hotel with parking space. Somebody hit my car from front rightside on the road outside our hotel as the hotel parking was not available.

I hope you find this useful. Thanks!!

Nice to hear for reaching back safely.
Did this circuit last year. Please share pictures and your travel experience whenever get time.
Didn't went to Chandertal? was it open
Nope! My mom n wife got scared to see the road :p and didn't want to go Chandertal. I will do this trek next year with my friends. We are planing for Leh next year.

Sure, I was busy in my office. I'm sorting out the pictures and will post soon.

Cheers!!
