Nothing makes a Rider’s eyes light up more than reaching to an untouched natural beauty on an elevation of about 12,500 feet (3,800 m). With daunting, snow-capped peaks, deceptively placid streams and pockets of civilization amidst colourful forest canopies, the Spiti Valley is one such landscape situated at a high-altitude desert which is a land between dry landscape of Leh and greenery of Himachal. It is a watershed area receiving a minimal rainfall throughout the year and no less than a ride to a fairyland where nature still exists untouched & holds its raw beauty.
Sach Pass, a breath-taking pass mountain pass that runs over the Pir Panjal Mountain range, at the height of 4500 meters, connects Dalhousie with Chamba and Pangi Valleys. At a distance of 150 kilometres away from Dalhousie, it is one of the most difficult passes to cross in North India. It is a Riders dream come true to experience the thrill of riding through it.
Though it’s a quite late plan but would love to be joined by fellow IBR brothers.
