In Rainy Season,
It is Hell to be here !
A BMTian had very bad experience in crossing these water streams in Monsoon Ride to Spiti with Team !



There was an auto also and some bikers were trying to cross that water crossing with each other’s help.
So this was the famous & ferocious CHHOTA DARA Water crossing. I saw one local vehicle coming and crossing it.




That local vehicle gave me confidence of crossing it. I moved ahead and crossed Chhota Dara at one go.

I was very happy to cross it at one go. Doing that solo was something which gave me more confidence.
And yes, in this process, my bike got cleaned up from bottom. Both the rim of my wheels got fully cleaned with water stream.




How difficult is this water crossing? See this video of a biker crossing it.
