Spiti Valley Bike and Backpacking Trip

View photos


Bike trip to the Spiti valley from Himachal allows you to have an unforgettable experience. Standing tall at an elevation of 12,500 ft Spiti valley provides you with an extremely cold yet mesmerizing experience of the Himalayas.    

Throughout the journey, you will get to pass through roads that are dreamt by many and only tenacious people dare to ride here. Also, the trip remains incomplete without mixing with the locals and exploring the culture. Additionally,  being away from the hustle and bustle of urban life, the air of Spiti Valley lets us breathe. 

Trips take place from May to October as it is the best time to visit the Spiti Valley on Bike and the weather in Spiti Valley remains pleasant during these months. But, one can say that June and July are the best months to visit the Spiti valley if we narrow down even further. The reason being the temperature of Spiti Valley which ranges between 15-20 degrees Celsius.

The road to Spiti looks amazing but it is also considered a little rough because of the altitude and it is considered as the most Treacherous road.  As you move forward in your journey you will see the gradual rise in altitude. The difficulty will keep on increasing but that where the real fun lies, right?

Spiti's high-altitude has turned it into a nesting place for many Buddhists in the past. So, you will get to see important ones such as the Kee or Key, the Tabo, and the Dhankar monastery. Take your time to explore these monasteries in the Spiti Valley and to get to know their histories. Also, make sure to check out the meditation caves in Tabo.

Kaza is one of the main villages in Spiti valley and it has a remarkable market. Here you can try the local cuisine of Spiti Valley at some of the nearby restaurants. From Kaza you can also take part in an uphill trek to Hikkim, the highest Post Office of the world at a height of 15,500 ft.    

Kibber which is 18 KM from Kaza is another interesting village that you should visit on this trip. Being one of the highest inhabited villages, it is bustling with life. On the trip to the Kibber Sanctuary, you may get lucky and see an ibex or a snow leopard or maybe not that lucky, so be a little careful.

Visit Kaza in July or August to come across the Ladarcha trade festival which was earlier held at Kibber. Local products get bartered at this fair and it is quite colorful. 

The trip to Chandra Tal Lake will be a highlight of your trip because of its blue crystal clear water. In the summer months, greenery covers the nearby meadows bringing in flocks of cattle. If you are willing, you can even camp by the lake between June to October ( restrictions are in place now and camping near Chandrataal might be a problem now) 

If you like adventures, then you should try out river rafting, trekking or even yak safari (additional tours). River rafting in Spiti and Pin provides you with picturesque views of the mountains. Some common trekking routes include Pin-Parvati, Pin-Bhaba, and Parang-La. A trek to Dhankar Lake is also possible to have a nice view of the Spiti valley. 

This 10-day bike trip from Manali to the Spiti Valley you will get to explore one of the highest points of India. The trip helps you to know the unknowns of the pristine and seldom explored valley and its people along with other wonderful Wravelers. 

The reasons you need to check out the Spiti Valley Bike Trip in 2020 are far more than many but if you still got doubts then let us clear them up while you are on a trip to Spiti Valley with JustWravel.

Q. What will be the group size for Spiti Valley?

Usually, we take a maximum of 15-18 people in one group. We believe bigger groups have less fun and less coordination so that’s why we prefer smaller groups.

All our trips are led by professional trip coordinators who have a good experience in leading groups, they are also well versed with the local region.

Q. I am the only girl in the group, is it safe to travel solo?

Yes definitely it is, the safety of girls is most important for us. All our guides and other staff are carefully chosen for road trips. They are honest and reliable but we also advise you to take care of your personal belongings.

Q. Which shoes should I buy?

Shoes are always your lifeline on the trek. Although there aren’t any treks that we do on this trip, but small hikes to Dhankar Lake and Chandrataal lake also require good shoes, as the trails are definitely tricky.

Carry a shoe with the proper sole which won’t slip. A Quechua or forclaz shoes available at Decathlon will also do.

Q. How to get safe drinking water on the trip?

Himalayan water is considered the purest water and safe to drink. But for safety purpose, we sometimes boil the water and then use it for drinking and cooking.

In case you find any clean water on the trek, always fill your water where the water is running not where the water is stable or is in rest.

Q. Can we change the itinerary?

Yes, you can give suggestions. We will look into that and if we find it feasible then we will apply it.

Well, it totally depends on person to person. Usually, there are no side effects of Diamox but if you are having any prior medical conditions then it is better to consult your doctor.

Our itinerary is designed in a way that we take sufficient time to get acclimatized. In case if you are having problem on the trek then tell your trek leader about your condition as soon as possible.

Q. What will we do if it rains?

If it starts raining slowly while trekking then we will continue our trek as per the plan. Your poncho will keep you dry. In case if it is raining heavily then we will try to find any shelter and wait for the rain to stop or slow. If it rains at the campsite then there would not be any problem because all our living tents, kitchen tents and toilet tents are waterproof. You will stay dry inside.
