ISTARED MY JOURNEY TO nowhere to find out what’s left out for me in this life. it’s always said that the journey of thousand miles begins with a single step. i did not know where to go and where to start from, so it was like “no Destination Move”.
i started from my home to Delhi and spent a few days in the capital city,
Dilwalon ki Dilli…
from there i started my journey to the gorgeous hill station, Manali, the “Valley of gods.” i was awestruck at rohtang pass, 3,987 metres above sea level and the highest point in the region, one that offers unbelievable views. after spending three days in Manali, i headed towards spiti valley, the coldest desert mountain valley high in the Himalayas. spiti is known as “the middle land” as it falls between india and tibet.
Despite starting off without any particular destination, i finished my ride following this route: Manali – Kaza – langza – Hikkim – Komic – Pin Valley – tabo – rampur – Delhi.
a few highlights of the places i visited. Komic is the highest village in the world and the road connecting to it is at an altitude of 4,587 metres. Hikkim pays host to the world’s highest post office at 4,400 m. tabo is home to the oldest monastery founded in 996 ce.
the journey was awesome all the way through and i never felt lonely during this journey even though i was travelling solo; because wherever i went, people were warm and welcoming with loud cheers and ready smiles.
