We left Manali a little after noon… Crossing Rohtang Pass, we entered the beautiful Lahaul and Spiti Valley. We stopped at Koksar for Tea and a plate of juicy Mutton Momos. The temperature had started to drop and we decided to add beanies and gloves to our warm clothes’ stock.
We stopped at Tandi to fill-up fuel but unfortunately the petrol pump was closed. This petrol pump is the last one on the way to Leh. But we were hopeful that we will be able to get some fuel arrangement done in Jispa. We reached Jispa around 9pm.
The host at Nomadic Camps welcomed us with the warmest of smiles, interesting stories and good food! The tents had all basic amenities and was comfortable. We also tasted the local alcohol made of Barley, known as Aara. As we gulped it down, we could feel ‘strong’ written all over it! I don’t know if it was the alcohol or the fact that we were tired or both, but, we slept like a baby!
