#TIDTravel : Kavea Chavali’s Trek to Spiti Valley

By Kavea Chavali

Every adventure junkie dreams to explore the great desert mountain valley located high in the Himalayas. My brother Viral from Bangalore was doing the Spiti Valley trek and without nay second thoughts, I jumped in! So we had the itinerary set for 17th-25th June 2017- we started our trip from Chandigarh and opted for a cab drive to cover as many places as possible…and trek once we reach the spot.

So it was Mumbai-Chandigarh-Shimla-Narkanda-Sangla-Nako-Geyu-Tabo-Dhankar-Kaza-Ki & Kibber monastery-Hikkim-Langza-Komic-Chandertal-Rohtang-Manali- Delhi-Mumbai. We stayed at homestays that were serving us butter tea (you need to acquire taste for it though) and lots of thukpa and maggi (which was it’s tastiest best) .At Chandratal we decided to camp as that’s how it’s done there!

It was a life changing trip! Conquering fresh territory is exhilarating!

Often a person might feel like they’re stuck in a rut in  daily life. Or they’re yearning for something exciting and different- craving new experiences and new challenges. Travel is the ideal place to test yourself. When you do travel, you’ll discover how resourceful you are when you’re exposed to new places, people and experiences. Maybe it’s finding your way around a busy city. Or ordering a meal when you don’t speak the language. Or zip-lining.

Another reason why I love to travel: it helps open your mind. You realize that there’s no one way to live life. Meeting people from other places will show you that your world view isn’t the same as everyone else’s.

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, To gain all while you give, To roam the roads of lands remote, To travel is to live.” (C) Viral Shah


“This is for the girls who don’t always win. The girls who stay up all night listening to music that inspires them. The girls that laugh, smile, cry and think all on a daily basis. The girls who love, learn, and regret. The girls who many never have it easy. The girls who learn the hard way to live and tell about it. The real girls.. Keep Smiling”
