    socks, extra day bag, reusable polybag for used
    and wet clothes etc. You must carry some games,

    very amusing and easy but one must be fully
    prepared for it, as it required special
    attention. Do not try to overlook any symptom.
    Take good sleep, eat fibrous food, drink water in
    small portions, and just dont put so much junk
    food in yourself.
  • Follow Driving Rules
  • For a smooth road trip your vehicle must smoothly
    run, and for smooth vehicle performance, you
    need to take some precautions and follow some
    rules for the completion of your journey. You
    must follow the driving speed limit, do not drink
    and drive, follow signages, maintain the speed,
    drive on the side, not at the center, do not try
    to take your car as a sports car and yourself as
    the Formula One race driver.
  • Interact with locals
  • A local of any place helps you to see another
    perspective of the place, which you wont be
    able to see with bare eyes. To have a wonderful
    trip try to indulge with locals and live their
    culture. They try to help you unconditionally. So
    just grab every opportunity to interact with
    them and keep talking to them as they can help
    you with Dos and Donts of that particular
  • To experience the grandeur of Spiti, spend some
    time to gaze starry sky, camping by the river,

    every place. Words cant describe the feeling
