    I had passed through Spiti, while returning from Cliffhanger Trip in 2015, however it was done in a complete rush and that regret was still there inside me.

    Spiti Valley on bike with pillion, this idea was born on 4th July, 2017 at 3.30 AM when I suddenly woke out of sleep. How this idea came to mind at those hours is still a mystery for me. The idea was so strong that we (me and my better half) booked the tickets (both sides) to / from Delhi. The go ahead from respective parents was still awaited.

    Well, everything from planning to execution was yet to be done, what we had was a confirmed ticket in Rajdhani Express to Delhi, dated 30th September 2017.

    Slowly will reveal everything, till than enjoy few teasers from the trip.

    Sunrise from Rajdhani Express.
