We think the best part of travelling to Spiti are these varied experience one ends up having. Just like the other day when we were travelling to Sagnam village in Pin valley, driving through few feet of snow.
We had a vehicle trying to maneuver its way through the snow, heading towards the same destination, and few kilometers before the Sagnam village, it found itself stuck in heaps of snow, and there was no other option but for everyone to climb out of the vehicle, and come together to push the vehicle.
And what began as a tedious activity, slowly took form of a fun event, where everyone was taking turns to push the vehicle, while the rest were just standing behind, catching breath and forming new friendships, sharing stories of winters in Spiti, of the villages that are accessible, talking about the snow leopard that was recently spotted in Kibber village, inquiring if the Langza and Demul villages were accessible.
And before the shovel finally came out, to clear the snow in front of the wheels, and before the vehicle moved onwards on its journey, we stood there, laughing at each other's jokes, sharing phone numbers, and making a memorable day out of a little discomfort.
Realising how fascinating are these days in Spiti, where every moment arrives with the opportunity to create few more memories.
