En route : Puh, Khab, Nako (known for its Lake) & Giu.  When you drive from Nako to Tabo, you cross a bridge over the Spiti River after Sumdo and take a detour of about 7 km to reach a small hamlet called Giu. This is an almost isolated habitation with no other village in view, but what makes it famous is over 500-years-old mummy of a Buddhist monk. On a small hillock just on the outskirts of the village in a small room, inside a glass cabin, lies the mummy of an old monk. The nails, teeth and hair of the mummy appear as if of a living person. There are many theories about how this monk’s body has remained in this state without decay and without the use of any chemicals for preservation. Apparently his body got buried beneath a glacier during an avalanche and remained there for hundreds of years till ITBP (Indo Tibetan Border Police) personnel found it during some road clearance project. It was then brought to Giu and placed here, and a small shrine was built around it. Another theory claims that the yogic posture in which the monk sits can self preserve the body. Whatever the case be, it is no less than a wonder to witness that how a human body has preserved itself for so many years without any decay or chemicals.

Important Points & Facts top be updated while travelling to Kinnaur & Spiti

Important Points & Facts top be updated while travelling to Kinnaur & Spiti
Best time to go: April to early-October when roads are open, but dates vary every year. Catch the autumn colours in October and munch apples fresh from the trees. No vehicular movement is possible the rest of the year (October to May) via Manali and Kunzum Pass. Roads are open longer when coming via Shimla but you can only go up to Kaza.

 

Connectivity & Mobile Networks: Only state-run BSNL mobiles work in Tabo and Kaza, and service is erratic. Internet access is limited and slow. But in Kinnaur you can find airtel connectivity as well but  BSNL has a broader reach and better signal and connectivity in the region. 

 

Vehicles to use: It is best to use SUVs – these need not be 4-wheel powered. But people do use sedans too, Sedan is only recommended if you plan to visit only kinnaur from Shimla  and come back through same route back to Chandigarh to Delhi. Else if you wish to travel to Spiti and want to connect to Manali Sedan is not recommended because of the rough terrain of the road.

 

Permits: Foreigners require Inner Line Permits. Minimum 4 person are required to move in group if one wants to visit Kaza and Tabo from Shimla. The permits can be acquired in Shimla from ADM Shimla or at Recong Peo SDM Office.

 

Altitude Sickness : Going till Kinnaur does not affect the body metabolism as such but  entering to spiti can affect  your body metabolism as you go higher in altitude in Spiti. Basic precautions: (a) Keep sipping water regularly, (b) Cover your head and ears with something warm when it is cold and windy (c) Don’t push yourself physically too much (d) Don’t stay at high altitude passes for too long (e) Go easy on yourself for the initial 1-2 days, you should be ok after that. It is advised strongly to  keep  one night stay in and around Shimla/Manali and start slowly in first two days. Later the body gets acclimatized to high hill driving.

 

Climate: Biting cold from November to March with temperatures falling many degrees below normal. Everything is frozen over. The months of April to October are pleasantly warm, while it is comfortably cold during the other months. It is always cold at higher altitudes. Make sure you carry warm clothes at all times. Very littl precipitation in this rain shadow area.

 

Packing your Bags: While visiting Kinnaur & Spiti.  Warm light woolen cloths are required from May to October. As a cold mountain desert, the weather in Spiti is almost confusing! The sun's rays are harsh enough to burn your skin, while shaded areas remain cool enough to wear a jacket. It's best to pack clothes in layers, and carry full-sleeve T-shirts, sun hats, sun glasses and any other sun protection you can find. Good walking shoes are a must.

 

Distances/Sightseeing and Roads: Kinnaur & Spiti being the remoter destination of Himachal offers the travel to the lesser known lifestyles, religion and landscapes, the region is well connected by roads but at times you find the patches which are very rough and terrain very challenging to travel. Guest has to acknowledge the fact that he is not travelling to leisure destination. At times you can find the road blocks, traffic jams because of the landslides and weather conditions. Kindly be prepared that the travel time mentioned depends upon the road conditions and usual time calculated in reaching from one place to another on approximation.

 

Health Precautions: Carry personal medication (Mainly Crocin, ORS/Electrol, Eno, Disprin/Asprin, Band Aids, Thermometer, Adhesives, Alcohol based sanitizer, Tensor Bandages, Antiemetics). Do not over eat while travelling to a higher altitude to avoid nausea/ vomiting.

 

Must Carry:

1. Sunscreen lotion & Moisturizing lotion

2. Heavy Woolen Clothing & socks

3. Good rubber-soled shoes

4. Personal Medication

5. Camera with sufficient batteries and film / memory cards

6. Dark polarized Sun glasses with retainers
