We drive back to Kaza in the evening and spend the night in a comfortable and warm Kaza hotel.
On the third day of our Spiti Valley tour, we drive towards the beautiful Pin Valley. Imagine a national park with an abundance of animals and birds, with some rare plant varieties, a river that gushes when it isn’t frozen and trekking opportunities for the adventure-seekers. The Pin Valley promises all this and more. We first visit the Kungri Monastery and then the beautiful hamlet of Mudh – the last motorable village of the Pin Valley.

Travel Junky made our trip memorable like no one else could. The trip altogether exceeded all expectations and I along with my friends had a really great time. We went in a group of 20 to the Valley Of Flowers and Hemkund Sahib in Uttarakhand. The treks, hotels, camping, food and everything else was superbly managed. Aman, Akash & Tanishq, the three co-ordinators were really helpful and ever ready to make the trip more exciting and fun. If you're looking for a hassle free vacation, look no further than Travel Junky. Kudos to the entire team for handling everything so well.
