21 days 21 memories: #6 the Spiti Drives

I’ve always loved driving. For me, driving has been about freedom, exploration and love. The wind in my hair and the fresh breeze has always done wonders to me. Every time I’ve got a chance, I’ve hopped into my car and left. Several times for days on end. One such drive was to Spiti valley in sexy blue which included the insane drive from Kaza to Manali. This route is considered to be one of the most treacherous roads in the world.

There are massive rivers which run on the road – with huge rocks underneath the water. There are long stretches of “no road”, streams, boulders and land slides to cross. In short, one my best driving adventures.

Picture 1: This is the Kaza to Manali road – or the lack of it. Sexy blue with me each step of the way. No problems whatsoever!

This was the perfect drive. It gave me laughs, fear, a sense of wonder and moments which I’ll remember for the rest of my life. I hope I’ll get to drive this route again!
