Ship is safest in harbor but thats not its built 4
Keylong is 7 km ahead of the detour for Pangi Valley.

Killar to Bairagarh is certainly possible.

Please review the amended itinerary and validate if it's possible. Else suggest the amendments.

Amended Itinerary (V2.0) of Spiti Ride:

Day1: Chandigarh-Narkanda
Day2: Narkanda-Rampur- Sarahan- Sangla- Chitkul
Day3: Chitkul-Rakcham-Sangla-Karcham-(Reckong Peo & Kalpa: No Halting)- Pooh – Dubling – Khab – Ka – Nako/Tabo (Can Tabo be reached in 1 day and what could be approximate ETA at Tabo, else should we just pass-by any place without halting. Does BRO personnel allow to cross landslide prone streach near Sumdo post 4PM)
Day4: Tabo - Dhankhar Lake – Mud -Komic
Day5: Komic-Hikkim-Langza-Key-Kibber-Chandra Taal (Is it doable in 1 day, else what to be dropped)
Day6: Chandra Taal- Trolikinath-Udaipur (Is it doable in 1 day, else what to be dropped)
Day7: Udaipur – Killar (Undecided whether stay should be at Killar or go to Bairagrah, please suggest based on scenic beauty and serenity parameters. And don’t want to ride post 3PM.)
Day8: Killar-Bairagrah (If Day-7 travel is till Bairagrah, then this day can be a buffer.
Day9: Bairagrah -Khajjiar-Dalhousie
Day10: Dalhousie - Dharamshala- McLeod Ganj (Undecided whether stay should be at Dharmshala or go to McLeod Ganj, please suggest based on scenic beauty and serenity parameters.
Day11: Dharamshala – Jawalamukhi(Jawala Ji Temple)- Chintpurni(Chhinnamastika Devi) Amritsar (Reaching late at Amritsar is ok)
Day 12: Rest Day
Day 13: Amritsar- Chandigarh


Have Day-14 free is factored as buffer. And may be Day8 based on input(If Day8 becomes buffer, suggest what should I do with that:)).

Don’t go by the distance on Google Map, reality on the ground is going to be very different. You will be averaging around 20-25 kph max till Gramphu.
Losar to gramphu distance is 80 kms.......and riding time is 5 hrs.....with good weather conditions this time is minimum .......totally off-road....road naam Ki koi chijj hi nhi.....

People do Sarahan to Kaza in a single day, it comes down to your riding speed.

Once again, it comes down to your riding speed.

I have already said this multiple times, Sissu is where you ought to be targeting. Rest it is your call.

Frankly speaking, if you don’t want to ride past 3 pm, then none of your riding days until now are going to be possible and certainly, there is absolutely no way you can cover Udaipur to Bairagarh distance by 3 pm.

Dharamshala is the quiet place and McLeodganj is where the action is at.

Don't get too much into planning as plans never materialise, on these routes, given the many factors beyond your control.

Now you have got fair idea about what to expect on these roads and about time needed.

Go easy and enjoy the journey rather than doing touch and go kind of a ride.
Ride safe and enjoy the journey,
Cheers...

Hi,
Absolutely, just trying to have some framework. Rest is on Mother Nature.

I see to camp sites at Chandr Taal (ND & Jamaican). Any recommendation....
