We would like to share the following information before you plan to drive to Spiti in winters!!!

 

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. Go Boundless Team will assist you to carry right clothing and essentials to deal with the extreme cold.  

 

Road Condition- Snow on the road

While driving to Spiti in winters you will surely find ice and snow on the road. Roads after Sumdo 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. Expect the unexpected on this trip and be prepared for a chilling adventure!!!

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

Vehicle Trouble and Preparations

Subzero 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 mechanics available in Kaza in the winters. Go Boundless team has expert mechanics travelling along with the convoy who will help fix minor problems in your car. It is mandatory that your car should be serviced properly and you must follow the below mentioned instructions-

  • Only use winter grade engine oil and coolant.
  • Do not mix water in the coolant.
  • If possible, mix diesel with Anti-Gel or anti-freeze chemicals.
  • Keep your tank full and try not to park your car in the open.
  • 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

Attached English Toilets with Running water/Bucket water. 

Note: Sometimes the sewage systems and pipeline freezes in extreme cold, in that case hot & cold water will be provided in the buckets.  

 

Stay and Food

Comfortable heated Stay throughout the Drive. All meals are taken care by Go Boundless. We provide experiential picnic lunches at few spots. 

 

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!!!
