I AM COMING SOLO. IS THAT A PROBLEM?

Most people come alone for my trips. About 25% of the people bring a friend or partner.Honestly It really doesn't matter. I have seen on all the batches I have lead. Most people really gel with everyone, even the ones who thought wouldn't gel up, surprise themselves always with the way they got comfortable with everyone.

YOUR ITINERARY LOOKS DIFFICULT FOR ME. CAN I DO IT?

Each trek/ trip is rated according to the number of days we spend outdoors . If you aren't sure where to start, go with an easy trip or trek.

For trips,
I dreamed of trips where we could go out hike , get exhausted , come back to hotel and have a great evening. This is exactly why some of my trips have Day hikes in it. It is a perfect chance for people who have never hiked in their entire life. Don't worry, We are there :).

For treks,
you can start with Sandhakphu or Chandrashila . You can also benchmark yourself for the treks.
1. If you can run for 30 mins and cover around 3-3.5 km , then you can go ahead with an easy trek
2. If you can run for 30 mins and cover around 3.5-4 km , then you can go ahead with an moderate trek
3. If you can run for 30 mins and cover around 4-5 km , then you can go ahead with an difficult trek

If you have never done a high altitude trek, then start with a easy or Easy- moderate trek. That way you will understand how your body reacts to high altitude and you can check you cardio strength too.

ARE THERE ATM FACILITY AVAILABLE IN SPITI VALLEY?

ATM facilities are limited in Spiti Valley, and it's recommended to carry enough cash for your trip. The last ATM facility is available in Reckong Peo or Kaza, so it's advisable to withdraw enough cash before heading to remote areas.

WHAT ARE TRIPS LIKE?

Usually, most batch sizes are between 12-20 people who are aged between 16-38. Most people come alone or with a friend. The trip would feel like you are travelling more with college friends than strangers. We tend to do more outdoorsy things than regular trips .

For example : If we find a very pretty waterfall/ a beautiful sunset / Rainbow on the way. We would stop the vehicle right away to catch the beauty of it.

We usually sleep very late on these trips as we play a lot of group games and most people feel they will miss the precious time with the group members and decides to stay awake.

HOW IS THE MOBILE CONNECTIVITY IN SPITI VALLEY?

Mobile network connectivity is limited in Spiti Valley, especially in remote areas. BSNL and Jio networks have better coverage compared to other providers. It's advisable to check with your service provider about network availability and consider purchasing a local SIM card if required.

ARE THERE ANY PRECAUTIONS TO TAKE WHILE TRAVELLING TO SPITI VALLEY?

Traveling to Spiti Valley involves navigating high altitudes and rugged terrain. It's important to acclimatize properly, stay hydrated, and avoid exertion. Carry necessary medications, follow safety guidelines, and consult with a doctor before the trip, especially if you have any pre-existing health conditions.

IS IT TRUE THAT SPITI VALLEY IS THE BIRTHPLACE OF YETIS?

While the legend of yetis is fascinating, their birthplace remains a mystery. However, you might encounter friendly locals with captivating stories about mythical creatures during your trip.

ARE THE RORADS IN SPITI VALLEY DESIGNED FOR DRIVING OR FOR PRACTICING EXTREME OFF-ROADING STUNTS?

The roads in Spiti Valley can be quite adventurous, with steep curves and jaw-dropping cliffs. While they might tempt you to showcase your off-roading skills, it's best to drive safely and enjoy the scenery without any daredevil stunts!

CAN I SURVIVE IN SPITI VALLEY SOLELY ON MOMOS AND CHAI, OR SHOULD I PACK MY OWN STASH OF SNACKS?

While momos and chai are undoubtedly delicious, it's a good idea to pack some snacks for your trip. Trust us, the stunning views in Spiti Valley taste even better with a bag of chips or a chocolate bar!

CAN I ENGAGE IN ADVENTURE ACTIVITIES LIKE TREKKING AND CAMPING IN SPITI VALLEY?

Yes, Spiti Valley offers several opportunities for adventure enthusiasts. You can embark on thrilling treks like the Pin Parvati Pass or visit the high-altitude lakes for camping.
