    Go White Spiti- Dare to Drive

    There is an old saying- "Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations"!!!

    Inviting Brave Hearts to venture out and explore spiti valley in pristine white colours of snow with frozen river beds and beautiful wide valleys!!!

    Harsh Weather Conditions and Sub Zero Temperatures:
    The minimum temperature in Kaza goes down to -20˚C and will further drop as the winter progress. It's colder than your freezer at home. There are many places in the world which might be colder than spiti and you may not find the luxury of brands to keep you warm enough neither do the houses in spiti have central heating. Inside temperature of the house is around -1 degrees.

    Road Condition- Snow on the road:
    While driving to Spiti in winters you will surely find ice and snow on the road. Roads are maintained by the GREF and they are not very regular in cleaning the snow. This means the road will be slippery and you will have to be extra careful while driving on it.

    Driving on the Hindustan Tibet highway in Kinnaur valley can be very unpredictable. Be prepared for ANYTHING- Shooting stones, landslides, ice and frozen roads, slush, water crossings, heavy snow fall, freezing temperatures etc. Don't keep your expectations too high for this trip!!!

    Go Boundless Team has expertise in snow driving. Before starting the trip we will provide give you complete guidance.
    4x4 vehicle and Snow Chains are mandatory for the drive.

    Vehicle Trouble and Preparations:
    Sub zero temperature can cause a lot of troubles in your vehicle. Diesel driven cars are prone to more problems due to freezing than petrol driven cars.

    There won't be any mechanic available in the winter. Go Boundless team also has expert mechanics, who will help you fix minor problems in your car.

    It is mandatory that your car should be serviced properly and you must follow the below mentioned instructions-

    a. Only use winter grade engine oil and coolant.
    b. Do not mix water in the coolant.
    c. If possible, mix diesel with Anti-Gel or anti freeze chemicals.
    d. Keep your tank full and try not to park your car in the open.
    e. There won't be any puncture shops after Kinnaur, so make sure all tyres including the spare are in good shape.

    Go Boundless Team has an equipped backup vehicle to winch you out wherever required but we request you to prepare well.

    Toilets (Dry Toilets):
    In winters, when the sewage systems freeze, you have to use the Dry-Toilets. Dry toilets do not smell. Also, make sure you flush with a shovel full of compost after you are done.

    Stay and Food:
    All the hotels are closed at this time. Few home stay options are available in Kaza.

    Go Boundless has an exclusive tie-up with locals in Kaza. All the accommodations are booked in advance. Tsering Bodh is our hospitality partner; you will get a chance to experience the real hospitality of the people of Spiti by staying with them in their warm houses. Also, you will be contributing directly to the village economy.

    Food is included in the package but we suggest you to carry emergency ration with you. You should have a week's worth of dry rations to eat. Just in case you get stuck in a landslide or an avalanche. You should be prepared to face the harsh face of nature. (Things to carry list will be shared separately)

    We want that whosoever is joining us for this trip should be well prepared; mentally and physically!!!

    Are you ready for an adventure of a lifetime? If yes, you will be greeted with
    the real Spitian culture and lifestyle and the landscapes, which only a few lucky ones have the chance to witness!!!
