    These are the places I aspire to go. I probably will never get there, but your pictures inspire me.

    I like the argument at 13000 ft.

    Thank you.

    Chanderjeet nice photos, will be riding out to Kinnaur and Lahaul – <st1:place><st1:placeName>Spiti</st1:placeName> <st1:placeType>Valley</st1:placeType></st1:place> in a few hours for a solo ride. Was originally thinking of camping at Chandra Taal when the group ride was on card, now since I am solo I guess I will have to spend night at Batal.
    <o:p> </o:p>
    Did you find any accommodation in Batal? <o:p></o:p>

    The lonely guest house at chhota darra was still un inhabited.
    You surely can find guest house / dhaba at chhatru. Stay at the Chhatru Dhaba. Tell him 3 guys on motorcycle came last week from delhi and you are a friend...The guy will cut you a discount. :p
