Please take note that while we will be offering double-occupancy hotel rooms in, Rampur, and Kalpa during the height of winter, there may not be many options available in the Spiti Valley, therefore accommodations may also be offered on trip, quad, or maybe in dorms.
Since Spiti is a harsh desert, the winters there can be brutally cold. Dry winters with temperatures well below zero are typical (An average of – 10 Degrees and can go down to – 25 Degrees at certain places). Due to this freezing temperatures possibility of Running water is not there as everything liquid is frozen. Therefore, one must be ready to survive for a few days with very primitive amenities, such as using a dry pit toilet. The following information should be kept in mind before visiting Spiti in the dead of winter.
Spiti is a High Altitude Cold Dessert with the average altitude being 11000 Feet AMSL. This makes the possibility of contracting AMS very high. However, we will be halting at lower altitudes before we reach Spiti acclimatizing on the way, yet there are chances one may get AMS in the thin air of Spiti. Symptoms of AMS include:
-Lack Of Appetite
On the onset of such symptoms, seek immediate assistance and the only way to counter AMS is to descend to lower altitude and as soon as possible.
Drinking lots of water and keeping yourself nourished is important to avoid AMS. Also, avoiding exertion while in a high altitude region is important as heavy physical activity can lead to AMS in certain cases. In case you have asthma, please carry your inhaler with you or, in case of any other similar thing (including Asthma), please consult your doctor before visiting the High Altitude regions.
There are limited number of ATM’s in Spiti the availability of the same keeps on reducing, on the way to Spiti till around Pooh one will find ATM’s along the way in Spiti ATM’s are only in Tabo & Kaza which may or may not be in working conditions. So its recommended that one carries cash as per their requirement before we venture to Spiti.
There is only one Fuel Pump at Kaza which operates between 11:00 Am till 5:00 Pm and there is no surety if the fuel will be available as in bad weather conditions the pump will not operate. Therefore it is recommended that one carries spare can of fuel in case of emergency and refuel the vehicles when one gets an opportunity to do so.
Spiti lies in Trans Himalayan region of Himachal Pradesh, the high altitude and lack of vegetation makes driving or travelling in Spiti unpredictable and the activity involves risk of injury and even death as weather conditions are unpredictable. Chances of roads getting blocked in bad weather are high so please be flexible with your schedule as one may get stuck here for any duration ranging from a day to several days. The roads in winter are covered with snow and icy conditions can be found at many sections making it a treacherous. Though the snow cutting and road clearing machines and equipment is deployed along the way however in any event of road block one may have to wait for hours till the machinery arrives. Though precipitation is not very heavy in this region but there are certain sections along the road which receive heavy to very heavy snowfall causing change in the travel route and itinerary and even lead to us missing out on certain sightseeing points.
Sightseeing in Kaza to Villages like Hikkim, Komic, Langza, Chicham & Kibber /Losar / Mud etc depends upon the road conditions and snow conditions and will only be undertaken if there is no risk in driving on those roads, in case the conditions compromise the safety of travellers an alternate will be provided (Which again is subjected to the conditions) but no refunds will be provided as these circumstances are beyond our control
-In event of a road block or inability of reaching the desired destination due to Weather and Unsafe conditions. The entire team will have to stay at an alternate location. The cost of same will be shared by all the travellers and no adjustments will be made.
