    Puneet, please keep in mind that you will be traveling during the monsoon time when the roads in Kinnaur and also between Manali and Kunzum can shut down due to landslides. My suggestion would be to go in September, if it is possible, once the monsoon is over. If not, be ready for delays and rain, until you enter Spiti.

    Also, have you already been to Sarahan, Kalpa, and Chitkul?

    If not, are you planning to cover them on this trip?

    Based on these, I will help design you an itinerary.

    You can do something like this:

    Day 1: Delhi to Sarahan, long ride so start in the wee hours of the morning from Delhi.

    Day 2: Sarahan to Chitkul, after visiting Bhimakali Temple.

    Day 3: Chitkul to Kalpa, en route you can visit the Kamru Fort, last dhaba before the border, Lochawa La-Khang Fort, Narayan-Nagaini Temple and suicide point before Roghi Village.

    Day 4: Kalpa to Tabo, en route visit Nako Lake, Gue Monastery and Tabo Monastery.

    Day 5: Tabo to Kaza, en route visit Dhankar Monastery and Pin Valley.

    Day 6: Visit Key, Kibber, Gette, Tashigang, Komic, Hikkim, Langza and Demul.

    Day 7: Kaza to Chandertal or Losar. Camps at Chandertal are around 4 km before the lake, parking is a kilometer before the lake and you have to trek rest of the way.

    Day 8: Chandertal/Losar to Manali, long ride so start early in the morning.

    Day 9: Manali to Delhi.

    Day 10: buffer day

    Make sure to get the tankful at Rampur and Reckong Peo, after that the next petrol pump is at Kaza and then at Manali. Kaza petrol pump at times can run out of fuel.

    You can keep an extra day for Kinnaur if the need be, but since it is prone to landslide, my recommendation would be to enter Spiti as soon as possible.
